Eight Hon. and Eight Eev. Lord AETHUR C. HEEVEY, D.D., 
Lord Bishop op Bath and Wells. 
My Lord, 

It would have been meet and fit that a Work on the Cathedral 
Church should be dedicated to the Bishop of the Diocese, while the 
universal affection and esteem in which you are held by Clergy and People 
make it still more fitting ; to say nothing of the personal obligations I 
am under to your Lordship's kindness and help. 

I am painfully aware of the imperfections of the Work, but can only 
regret that circumstances prevented my making it more worthy of the 
Cathedral and of your Lordship's support, so kindly and readily rendered. 

1 am, 

My Lord Bishop, 

Your very obedient servant, 




TN submitting these pages to the Subscribers it will be well, in order to 
- 1 - mitigate to some degree adverse criticism, to point out the original 
intention and object with which the Work was undertaken. 

These were in the first place to preserve and render more generally 
accessible such memorial inscriptions and heraldry as still remain in the 
Cathedral and the Cloisters, the latter containing a large proportion of 
the inscriptions, for when the Cathedral underwent a general restoration, 
or, more correctly, renovation, the monuments underwent a promiscuous 
removal ; the recumbent effigies were moved into what were considered 
more seemly or convenient positions; the mural tablets, more or less 
bereft of their surrounding ornaments, of pillar and pediment, shields 
and figures, were moved into the cold shelter of the Cloisters, where some 
bear ample testimony to their mutilated condition, while some we know 
have perished altogether. 

Some will perhaps say, This is a small loss ; they were seventeenth, some 
eighteenth century work. Quite true ; but while we preserve with care 
all examples of earlier art, independently of their actual merits, have we 
any right or reason for destroying or neglecting these examples of a later 
age ? We anathematize the iconoclasm of past generations, and develop 
an iconoclastic spirit in our own, with this difference, instead of getting 
rid of all that is old, we select according to an arbitrary rule ; we preserve 
the history in stone of the earlier periods, and destroy the marble records 
of a later one — only, it would seem, because it is nearer to our own time. 

Probably no church is renovated — restored is the common phrase — 
without some memorials being wantonly destroyed or mutilated ; they are 
half covered by a pew or placed high up, so that they cannot be read, 
look as unsightly as may be, and hold the worshippers in fear of being 
crushed by their fall. 

The inscriptions are given as they now stand, without attempting to 
correct inaccuracies or supply what is now illegible, except what had 
been already copied by Mr. Fielder, whose MS. has been freely used. 
At the same time it appeared advisable, as likely to add both to the 


general interest and permanent value of the Work, if some notes were 
added from such original sources as parish registers and wills, and other 
sources not generally accessible, avoiding what has already appeared in 
print, unless for the purpose of clearness or completeness, and then as 
briefly as possible, such being confined almost entirely to a few extracts 
from the volumes of " Somerset Wills " collected by the late Rev. Frederick 
Brown and the Rev. F. W. Weaver's "Somerset Incumbents" — both 
essentially works of reference. In no sense do these notes profess to be 
a history or even a complete genealogical account of the families of all 
those who are in any way commemorated, for such is altogether beyond 
what was intended. These notes are of necessity very irregular, for, 
although it is believed that when descendants of the families could be 
found, and have been applied to for additional information, they have 
often neglected to respond; and. again, it has been found impossible to 
trace the representatives of many of the people commemorated. 

In going over the ground, it became apparent that much of great 
interest would be lost if the Vicar's Close was not included ; but if that 
was included, why should the Bishop's Palace be left out? Finally, it 
seemed to be the most satisfactory course to include what may be rightly 
considered the Cathedral Precincts ; and this has been carried out, 
rendering the Work more complete. Nothing, it is believed, has been 
omitted within the limits laid down, while valuable corroborative evidence 
has been supplied by this extension. 

As regards the monuments of the Bishops, they were all duly inscribed 
with the name of the prelate they were supposed to commemorate at the 
time the Cathedral was renovated, now nearly half a century since ; but 
the value of the authority for the identifications may be judged from 
the remarks on the tombs inscribed to Bishop Bytton II. and Bishop 
Drokensford. There is ample evidence as to the arms and family of 
Bishop William Bytton I. and II. and of Bishop Drokensford to put the 
matter quite beyond a doubt. At the same time, there does not appear 
to be any reason to hope that most of the early effigies can ever be with 
certainty appropriated. Several are of much later date than that at 
which the persons they are supposed to commemorate died ; consequently 
they are only mentioned as displaying certain inscriptions of modern 
date, without any attempt to prove or disprove the statements they set 
forth. To do more would be to trespass on the good work begun by the 
Sub-Dean, Canon Church, who has already given to the world most 
careful and exhaustive histories of Bishops Jocelyn and Severicus, sup- 
ported step by step by reference to indisputable authorities ; histories 
which we have reason to hope he will follow up by others. 

Thanks are due to the Bishop and the late Dean for access to the 
heraldry of the Palace and Deanery ; to the Rev. A. Coode, Chaplain, and 
the Rev. Prebendary Gibson, the President, for access to the Chapel, 


Library over it, and Common Hall of the Vicars, then the home of the 
Theological College, and since to their new Library ; to Canon Church 
for the opportunities of making extracts from the Cathedral manuscripts ; 
to Mr. Fielder for the use of his MS. copy of the inscriptions, which has 
supplied several portions of inscriptions now quite illegible ; to Mr. 
Lowndes Gleaves, Chief Clerk of the Probate Registry, for his courteous 
attention and assistance in the long searches in that office, only a small 
part of the result of which appears here. Finally, but not least, we must 
thank the Dean and Chapter for permission to copy and print the 

Many interesting additions might have been made from the Registers 
of Shepton Mallet and Bridgwater, but although a courteous request for 
permission to make extracts from these Registers, with full explanation of 
the literary purpose for which such were wanted, was made to Rev. Mr. 
Jones of the former and the Rev. Mr. Fitzgerald of the latter place, 
they practically refused to allow this to be done. For the numerous 
extracts from the Registers of St. Cuthbert, Wells, we are indebted to 
the Vicar, the Rev. Prebendary Beresford, who afforded every facility 
for transcribing the entries. 

Messrs. Mitchell and Hughes have executed the printing in their usual 
praiseworthy manner, and by the way they have entered into his design 
for the arrangement of the Work have saved the Author much trouble ; 
while the Photographs in the large-paper copies speak for themselves 
of the skill and care of Mr. Philips, of the Market Place, Wells, 
who has produced exceptionally good results under great difficulties 
regarding light.

Jte Monumental Inscriptions anir ©mrtftrg. 


Approaching the Cathedral from the Cathedral Green, we face the grand west 
front, which, though richly encrusted with statues and carving, the only shields of 
arms it displays are two on the north tower ; these are (or) on a chev. (gu.) within 
a lord. eng. (sa.) a bishop's mitre (ppr.) for Bishop John Stafford : the same arms 
appear on the seal of this Bishop. The other shield has a saltire imp. a/ess eng. betw. 
tivelve holly leaves, 4, 4, and 4, in quadrangles, for Bishop Bulworth. Both these 
shields are modern additions, their general style and the fact of the incorrect arms being 
used for the See, leave no doubt of this being the case. By going to the north side 
of the Cathedral we shall be able to see a shield contemporary with the building of 
the tower, viz., a fess eng. betw. tivelve holly leaves, 4, 4, and 4, in quadrangles, 
Bubwith ; it is on the east face of one of the buttresses on the north side of the 
north-west tower high up, and there cannot be the least doubt that it was cut and 
put up at the time the tower was built, and is the oldest piece of heraldry in or about 
the building. Bishop Stafford became Archbishop of Canterbury, and his place in 
the pedigree of his family will be found on pedigree given hereafter. Bishop 
Bubwith has a chantry in the nave which will be noticed in due course. Bishop 
Bubwith's coat is also carved on the outside of the east cloister, above the entrance 
on the south side. 

To the south of the west front of the Cathedral, on the external side of the wall 
of the west cloister, are the following on tilting shields, (az.) a fess letw. three 
Sloans' wings raised (arg.) Swann. Bishop Beckington as given hereafter. Barry 
of four (or two bars) a bend. There being no colours it is difficult to assign this 
coat. Grey, arg., two bars az. and a bend git. These shields are of the shape of the 
tilting shield of the fifteenth century, and are confined to that end of cloister wall, 
the charges being nearly obliterated. 

Entering the Cathedral from the west, we will take the monuments and heraldry 
in order as we come to them, proceeding up the north aisle of the nave into the 
north transept, down the centre aisle, returning up the south aisle, going round the 
south transept ; hence passing through the door to the south of the choir, we will 
proceed round it, taking the chapels in order as they stand, including the Treasure 



House, Chapter House, aud Choir, leaving the cloisters, into which all the mural 
monuments have been moved, until last. This explanation will render needless 
further specifying the position of the monuments beyond naming the several parts 
as they are reached.

June 13 





























From East to West. 

On the brass lectern are four armorial shields ; on each side of the book rest are, 
Erm., a lion ramp, collared. Crest, a dexter hand grasping a sword erect. Over the 
crest this motto " God grant " for Creyghton. Below the shield this inscription : 

" D r Eobert 
CREYGHTON. Creyghton upon his returne from fifteene years 

Exile w th o r Sovereigne Lord Kinge Charles y e 2 nd 
Made Deane of Wells in y e yeare 1660, gave 

this brazen 
Deske w th Gods holy worde thereon to the saide 
Cathedral Church." 

In an ornamental scroll at the top are the arms of the See, on both sides, viz., 
a plain saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale, betw. two keys addorsed the hows 
interlaced on the dexter, and a sivord erect on the sinister. 

A large stone near the entrance to the choir has the matrix only of a brass for a 
lady beneath a canopy, two shields and a label round the edge for the inscription. 
The whole is of large size, and must have been a splendid example of a monumental 
brass of the period. The style of the high mitred headdress points to the date 
being about 1460. 

A little further down is the stone pulpit erected by the direction of Bishop 
Knight, with his arms, now much mutilated, cut on the front, viz., Per fess, in chief 
a demi-eagle with two heads and sans wings issuing from a demi-rose conjoined to a 
demi-sun in splendour in base. This is more fully described where it occurs in 
coloured glass in the north choir aisle. 

Near the pulpit, and on the south side of the nave, is the Chapel of St. Edmund 
the Confessor, erected by Dr. Hugh Sugar, one of the executors of Bishop Beckyng- 
ton ; on the interior are several shields, on which are repeated this coat, three 
sugar loaves, and in chief a doctm^s cap, for Sugar. Collinson gives the coat as 
Sa., three sugar loaves arg., and in chief a doctor's cap of the second. And on his 
authority Papworth gives the coat, but it does not appear what authority Collinson 
had for the colours. It is evident from the examples in the vicar's close, where an 
initial f) takes the place of the cap, that the arms were originally a rebus or canting 
coat on his name. 

On the exterior cornice of this chapel are twelve shields, namely : 

Sugar, as above ; twice. 

A vase from which issue three lilies, all between two wings points downward ; 
repeated twice. 

(Vert), a cross flory (or), in dexter chief a demi-virgin with child ppr., for 
Glastonbury Abbey. 

The initials H. S. ; twice. 

The five wounds ; twice. 

A saltire betw., on the dexter two keys addorsed, the bows interlaced, and on the 
sinister a sword erect ; twice. The deanery. 

A saltire. The vicars. 


Opposite to this chapel, and on the north side of the nave, is the chantry chapel 
of Bishop Bubwith ; against the pillar at the west end is cut in high relief these 
arms, az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale or, betw., on the dexter two 
keys addorsed, the lows interlaced, the first arg. the other of the second, and on the 
sinister a sword of the third, hilt and pomel gold, imp. arg., afess eng. sa. betw. twelve 
holly leaves vert, 4, 4, and 4, arranged in quadrangles. Being the arms of the See 
impaling Bubwith. The shield is somewhat damaged, and the colours nearly gone, 
but can be supplied from coloured glass put up by himself in the library he built 
over the east cloister. This coat of Bubwith is not given by Burke or Papworth, 
they call the charges "bubbles." The coat occurs frequently carved and in coloured 
glass, so plainly that there cannot be the slightest doubt as to what the charges 
really are. 

On the floor of this chapel is the matrix of a brass, a demi-figure of a priest issuing 
from an inscription plate ; also four shields, and fillet round the edge of the stone. 

A modern brass is inscribed, "Nic. Bubwith, Ep. 1424." 

Above the arches, about half way down the nave on the south side, is what 
appears like the front of an altar tomb with three blank shields.

From a floorslab, on which the arms are well cut. The registers here and at St. 
Cuthbert supply us with some additional facts, while in the latter church this 
family are commemorated by a mural monument for Robert Kingston, M.A., Vicar 
of St. Cuthbert and of the adjoining parish of Wookey, who died 4 Aug. 1748, 
aged 43. The monument being erected by his daughter Elizabeth the 30th Dec. 1748. 
Arms, Az., a cross betw. four leopards' 1 faces or. Crest, A leopard' 's face as in tiie arms. 

A floorslab in the north transept commemorates Robert Kingston, Esq., son of 
the Rev. Robert Kingston and Mary his wife. He was a native of this city and a 
Major-General in the army, and died 24 Jan. 1819, aged 83. Also his sister Barbara 
Kingston, who died 24 Dec. 1819, aged 75. Arms the same as on the mural, but 
it is cut off from this slab, and is, like the inscription, nearly obliterated. Serel, in 
his history of St. Cuthbert's Church, gives the dates incorrectly, and gives the 
arms coloured as if from a mural monument that does not now exist, viz., Kingston 
(the field sa. and the heads argent), imp. Erm., on a head set. three plates (? bezants, 
for St. Aubyns). 

Margaret Kingston, daughter of the Rev. Robert Kingston, died 7 Nov. 1805, 
aged 67, and is recorded by a floorslab near that of her brother and sister. 

The Robert Kingston commemorated with some of his family by the slab in the 
Cathedral was a lawyer and Diocesan Registrar.

On the same stone with this inscription is the matrix of the brass for which it 
was originally used, consisting of a figure and inscription plate ; the date is about 
1500 a.d., and the figure, which is standing sideway, appears to be that of a burgess.

1719 Sep. 26 William Westley, Esq., buried in the Cathedral. 

This William Westley appears to have used two shields of arms, for among the 
parish documents of St. Cuthbert are two with his signature and seal ; in one case 
the seal has a shield charged with three cross-crosslets ; the other document, date 1704, 
has these arms on the seal, viz., Per fess six escallop-shells, three and three, counter- 
changed. Crest, an escallop-shell cJiarged with a cross-crosslet. No colours are on 
the seal, but we find on a monument in the cloister, Lovell impaling for Westley, 
Per fess arg. and gu., six escallop-shells, three and three, counter changed, and this coat 
is also quartered by Salmon (Sa., three salmons hauriant arg.) on a monument in 
the Church of St. Cuthbert, for William Salmon. 


Papworth gives for Wastley, Arg., three rross-crosslets saltire-ways with annulets 
at each end az. (and sometimes gu.) ; which is the coat on one seal slightly altered, 
but the other coat does not appear at all. What authority there is for either coat 
beyond assumption does not appear. The authority is perhaps very much better 
than is often the case, for if not registered in legal form at the College of Heralds, 
it does not appear to have been stolen from its lawful owner, which, alas! is 
frequently done. 

The Rev. Thomas Westley, above, was instituted to St. Cuthbert's Vicarage 
13 November 1634, and died at Butleigh, then being a Canon Residentiary of Wells. 
His will was proved 25 October 1662 by his son Thomas Westley. In it he names 
his son William, dau. Dorothy, and brother Billingsley.

In the great west •window are two shields, the one, Erm., a lion ramp, sa., 
collared or. Crest, A cubit arm erect, the hand grasping a sword, all ppr., for 
Creighton. The other being charged with the incorrect arms of the See, Az., a 
saltire per saltire and quarterly counter changed imp., Az., a lion ramp, or, with what 
appears to be a pastoral staff in bend sinister. Over the shield is a bishop's mitre. 
These are not the arms of any Bishop of Bath and Wells. The error seems un- 
accountable ; the window was reglazed by Bishop Creighton when Dean, and the 
glass taken down, cleaned, and refixed in 1813. There are two buckler-shaped 
shields charged with Az., a cross moline or. Probably not intended to be heraldic. 
One is below the figure ascribed to King Ina, the other beneath that of Bishop 

Ralph de Salopia.

There are no floorslabs in this transept. 

A fine recumbent effigy under an enriched arch, with well-cut heads at each 
end, one with beard the other without, and at the back three figures of a bishop 
between two angels, the heads and hands gone, inscribed " Willelmus de Marchia 
Ep'c: Bathon : et Wellen's : A: D: mcccii." The arms of Bishop William de 
Marchia were, Vert, two lions pass, or, according to Papworth, but there is no trace 
of them on the tomb ; there are remains of gilding and colouring. Along the front 
by the edge of the table are six heads, alternately cleric and lay. 

Adjoining the last is the canopied tomb of Johanna, Viscountess Lisle, for 
whose descent see post. The stonework is painted, but nothing remains to identify 
the monument but a brass plate with the following inscription : 


"fife jaeetJToamta FteeeomttfeBa Be fUsle, una ftltarum

(See Pedigree, post.) 

In a window above this monument are two shields now coated and black, only 
traceable from below by the leading. They are, Gu., three lions pass. gard. or, within 
a lord, arg., and the same imp. quarterly, 1 and 4, Gu., a lion ramp, or, Fitz Alan ; 
2 and 3, Cheaueg or and az., Warren. 



For Thomas Holland, Earl of Kent, who being the half-brother of King Richard 
II. was authorized to use the royal arms within a bordure argent, in place of his 
own (Az., a lion ramp. gard. within an orle of fleur-de-lis arg.) ; he married Alice dau. 
of Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundell. The pedigree appended to the account of 
the armorial tiles gives the descent. 

Opening from the east side of this transept is the Chapel of St. Martin (now 
the Canons' Vestry), with the recumbent effigy of John Storthwait, Precentor 1426, 
and Chancellor in 1439. On the floor is the following : 


Hie jacet Joh's Grene coda 

Canonic huis eccl' qui obiit 

die m s Janua a d'ni M°cccc m0 . 

From this transept we pass into the cloisters, and will take the monuments there 
in succession, after completing the interior of the Cathedral ; we therefore return 
and enter the aisle on the south side of the Choir, where immediately on the right 
is the Chapel of St. Calixtus. 


Chapel of St. Calixtus. 

HUSSE. In this chapel is the alabaster monument of Henry Husse, Dean of 
Wells 1302—1305. 

On the front of the tomb are four shields, with one at the west end ; these 
were originally painted with the arms, as doubtless was another shield at the east 
end, now gone ; the colours are gone, but sufficient stain remains on all, except the 
one at the west end, to indicate the charges that were on them, viz., Or, fretty and a 
chief gu. 

Now this fretty coat is not that of Hussee or Hussey, a very ancient family in 
Somerset and Dorset, who bore two coats, viz., Or, a cross vert, and, Barry of six erm. 
and gu., but it points conclusively to the Dean's parentage, for we find that William 
Husee who was living in 1314 (7 Edw. II.) married Margery one of the daughters 
and coheirs of Theobald, Lord Verdon (by his first wife Maud, daughter of Edmund 


Mortimer and sister of the first Earl of March), who bore, Or, afretgu.; sometimes 
given as fretty, thus paying a compliment to his mother, whose family was a noble 
one, the rules for quartering being not at that period fixed. 

BECKINGTON. In this chapel are also the remains of a chantry chapel called 
Bishop Beckington's, but strange to say there is no trace of his arms 
or rebus about the remnants, though they so often appear on the archways, cloisters, 
etc., which owe their existence to him. There are two small shields held by angels, 
in the front of the canopy, but they are both charged with the sacred heart, hands, 
and feet, bearing the five wounds. 

In the upper part of the window in this chapel, in very old glass, is a shield, 
Gu., four fusils conjoined in f ess arg., Daubeney. 

DAUBENEY. The ancient family of de Albini or Daubeney held among 
other lands the manor of South Petherton in Somersetshire temp. 
K. Henry I., which they continued to hold for several generations ; indeed the family 
has kept up its connection with this county to the present time. The date of the glass 
is probably the first half of the fifteenth century, and represents William Daubeney, 
Esq., of South Petherton, born 14 June 1424, died 2 Jan. 1460-1 (Esc. June 1461, 
1 Edw. IV., No. 58), having married Alice, dau. and coh. of John Stourton of 
Preston, and was father of Giles, Lord Daubeney, who died in London 28 May 
1508, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. He was Constable of Bristol, Master 
of the Mint, a Knight of the Garter, Governor of Calais, and Lord Chamberlain of 
the Household ; and left by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Arundell of 
Lanherne, Henry Daubeney, created Earl of Bridgewater, who married twice but

married Alexander Buller of Lillisdon, Somerset, Esq. 

BUTTON Leaving this chapel and coming into the aisle on the south side of 
the choir, we find the recumbent effigy of a bishop ; also a raised 
tomb with the figure of a bishop incised on the top, close to which is inscribed 
" Willemus: De : Button Secon'd Epc' Bathon et Wellen's 


BEKYNTON. Beyond the last is the recumbent effigy of a bishop without any 
name or arms. A few steps farther east is the tomb of Thomas de 
Bekynton, who died 14 Jan. 1464 ; it is enclosed by iron rails, and contains 
two stories ; on the top is the Bishop in full canonicals, and below his emaciated 
corpse, but no arms. The tomb is inscribed " Thomas of Beckinton Ep'us Bathon' 
et Wellen's, Anno D'ni m.o.c.c.c.lxiv." 

The arms of Bishop Beckington which occur so often are (arg.) on afess az., 
belw. in chief three bucks' heads caboshed (gu.) and in base as many pheons (sa.), a 
bishop's mitre (or). His rebus or badge, which is also carved in many places, is a fire 
beacon lighted, the part to hold the fire being in the form of a tun or barrel. In 
one of the windows of the south choir aisle his arms are given thus : Arg., on a fess 
az., betw. in chief three bucks' 1 heads caboshed or, and in base as many pheons sa., a 
bishop's mitre, the ribbons extejuled, of the third. The same coat occurs in a window 



in Cheddar Church, with this difference, in the latter the fess is charged with a 
Jleur-de-lys betiv. two lozenges gu. Both these coats are heraldically wrong in 
placing metal on metal and colour on colour. Burke in his ' General Armory ' gives 
the first coat, making the heads gules. Papworth's Ordinary, on the authority of 
Glover's Ordinary, gives for Bekington the first of the above coats, making the 
bucks' heads az., and substituting an annulet or for the mitre, apparently for a 
brother of the Bishop. In Pole's ' Devonshire Collections ' the coat occurs with the 
mitre, but no tinctures, as in the cloisters and elsewhere, and the same is also cut in 
the stonework of the chapel of Wickham's School at Winchester. The shield at 
Cheddar is interesting as giving an example of an unrecorded difference of the 
arms. The origin of the coat is plainly suggested by two shields cut in the roof 
of the cloisters, in the account of the heraldry of which, they are mentioned. 

HAREWELL. Still farther east is the alabaster effigy of Bishop John Harewell, 
who died in July 1386. He chiefly contributed to building the South- 
West Tower, in which he hung two bells, and glazed the Great West Window. He 
has at his feet two hares, as a rebus on his name. There are no arms on the monu- 
ment, but an old Worcestershire family — whose pedigree (Harl. MS. 1566) com- 
mences with a John Harewell who had two sons, John living in 7 K. Henry V. 
(1419-20) and William who married and left issue — bore for arms, Arg., on a fess 
nebulee sa. three hares'' heads couped (sometimes erased) of the first. Crest, a hare's 
head erased or. 

On the north and south sides of the tower of Litton Church is carved a large 
shield, held by an angel, charged with Per fess nebulee, in chief three hares' 1 Mads 
couped. There can be no doubt that this is the coat of Bishop Harewell. On 
1 Oct. 1366 Richard Harewell was installed a Canon of Wells and Prebend of 


Ill one ©f the windows of this aisle are the following shields of arms : — 

(First.) The arms of King James I. impaling those of his Queen, Anne, daugh- 
ter of Frederick II., King of Denmark, viz., quarterly, 1 and 4 quarterly France and 
England, 2 Scotland, 3 Ireland, imp. quarterly, 1, Or, seme'e of hearts gu., three lions 
pass. az. croivned gold, Denmark ; 2 Gu., a lion ramp, crowned or, holding an axe arg., 
Norway ; 3 Az., three coronets or., Sweden or Scandinavia ; 4, Or, a lion pass. az. over 
nine hearts gu.ftve and four. Over all dividing the quarterings, the Cross of Dan- 
neborg, viz., a cross arg. edged gu. On the centre an escutcheon of pretence quar- 
terly, 1, Or, two Uojis pass, az., Schleswig. 2, Gu., an escutcheon per f ess arg. and 
gu., each point thereof approached ~by a passion nail in triangle, betw. as many nettle 
leaves all arg., Schaumberg. 3, Gu., a knight armed or, his scimitar sa., riding 
on a horse arg., Dietmarsen. 4, Gu., a horse's head couped at the neck or, Lauen- 
berg. In the base of the shield, Gu., a wyvern or, The Vandels. A portion of 
this shield appears in another part of the window, as also the arms of King James 
I. without those of his Queen occur in a mutilated state, with supporters, so that it 
is highly probable there were originally three shields, with the arms of the King 
and Queen each separately and also impaled together. The arms of this Queen 
generally have a second inescutcheon on top of the first, namely, Per pale, 1 st , Or, 
two bars gu., Oldenburg ; 2 nd Az., a cross fitchee at the foot arg., Delmanhorst. 

(Second.) Quarterly of four grand quarters, I. quarterly, 1 and 4 France 
modern, 2 and 3 England. II. Scotland. III. Ireland. IV. gone, but was the 
same as No. I. Supporters, dexter, a lion ramp. gard. crowned or ; sinister, a unicorn 
ramp. arg. gorged with a coronet, ivith a chain rejlexed over the back or, horned 
and unguled of the last. Crest, The lion of England. Motto, " Beati pacifici." 

(Third.) Az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale or, betw. on the dexter 
two kegs erect and addcrsed, the boivs interlaced, one of the second, the other arg., on the 
sinister a sword erect of the last, hilt and pomel gold. The ancient coat of the 
Bishopric of Bath and Wells. 

(Fourth.) The same as the last omitting the pastoral staff. The united chap- 
ters of Bath and Wells, or the Deanery of Wells. Having now for the first time 
described an early example of the arms of the See, which cannot have been in any 
way altered, it will be appropriate to consider, from the evidences we possess, what 
are really the right arms of the Bishopric of Bath and Wells. The earliest exam- 
ples of the arms of the Bishopric we have are a shield in the library over the east 
cloister, built by Bishop Bubwith, and undoubtedly contemporary with him ; the 
shield in the chantry chapel of that Bishop, the shields in the window just men- 
tioned, a large stone shield in the Palace, and the Vicar's Close, all dating from the 
fifteenth century. The shield in the library has unfortunately been broken, the 
part containing the pastoral staff being gone, and supplied by pieces of glass, one 
red above and one blue below. On Bubwith's tomb the arms for the See are as the 
third shield in the window above ; and the charges are on the shield in the Palace, 
as also in the Vicar's Close, where it occurs frequently alone, and once impaling 
Beckington. It must be specially noted that in all the early glass, the saltire is 
plain gold. The same arms for the See, namely, the saltire with the keys, sword, and 
pastoral staff, are on the lectern given by Bishop Creyghton, on that Bishop's 
tomb, on a boldly carved shield of the arms of Bishop Pierce in the Palace Crypt, 
as also on the monument of Bishop Hooper. This evidence must be admitted to 


be fairly conclusive as to what were the ancient arms of this Diocese ; yet it will 
be well to glance briefly at the origin of the double title, that we may trace the 
origiu of this coat, and fully understand its historical interest and representative 
character, which leaves no doubt of the propriety of its retention. The origin of 
the modern coat will be shewn when treating of the Vicar's Common Hall. 

In early Saxon days a Collegiate Church was established here, which was 
eventually made the head of the Somerset Bishopric, the church being dedicated 
to St. Andrew, and this continued until the time of Bishop John of Tours, 
consecrated in 1088, who obtained a charter from K. William II., dated 27 Jan. 
1090-1, confirming to him the said John, heretofore Bishop of Wells, the Abbey of 
Bath, that he may establish there the seat of the Somersetshire Bishopric ; in 1091 
the same King gives to God, St. Peter in Bath, and John the Bishop, the city of 
Bath and its revenues, in order that the Bishop's seat may be in that city ; and on 
the 5 April 1092 we "find the same John Bishop of Bath assisting at the consecration 
of Salisbury Cathedral. Again a charter of K. Henry I., dated 3 Sept. 1101, confirms 
the gift of the city of Bath made by William II., and appointing that Bath shall 
henceforth be the head of the See of Somerset. The single title of Bath is con- 
tinued until the episcopate of Saverie (or Savery), who, having dispossessed the Abbot 
of Glastonbury, added Glastonbury to his style, which was also used by Jocelyn 
until that Bishop restored the Abbey with most of its possessions to Glastonbury, 
when he returned to the title of Bath alone. Jocelyn then applied to the Pope (Hono- 
rius III.) for permission to use the double title of Bath and Wells, which application 
the Pope referred to his legate Pandulph. Nevertheless we find Jocelyn invariably 
styled Bishop of Bath only up to his death, when Innocent IV. confirmed the elec- 
tion by the monks of Bath of Roger, Precentor of Salisbury. The Pope having 
had the disputes and claims of the chapters of Bath and Wells for supremacy re- 
peatedly before him, by decree dated from Lyons 3 Jan. 1244-5, decided that the 
election should be by both chapters equally, to be celebrated alternately at Bath and 
Wells, that each church should be a Cathedral church, and that the style of the 
Bishop should be ' of Bath and Wells', and that the double title shall be engraved 
on his seal. Nevertheless it would seem that Bishop Roger having been elected by 
the monks of Bath apparently in opposition to the Canons of Wells, was unwilling 
to add Wells to his title, his neglect of which having been notified at Rome by the 
Dean and Chapter, the Pope sent the Bishop a letter dated 14 May 1245 peremp- 
torily commanding him to use the double title and to place it on his seal. From 
that time it has so continued. We see by this evidence that after first Wells and 
then Bath having been the seat of the episcopal dignity, both places were made 
jointly and equally Cathedral, under one Bishop. 

Now let us consider the armorial question ; the arms of the Abbey, or Priory 
of Bath, for at different times it held both positions, were az. two keys addorsed the 
bows interlaced, the upper or, the lower arg., and a sword of the last, hilt and pomel of 
the second, in lend dexter surmounting the lower and passing below the upper key. 
These ensigns were naturally adopted by the monks of Bath, displaying as they do 
the keys of St. Peter with the sword of St. Paul, the patron saints of their house. 
At the same time the chapter of Wells gave az. a saltire or, being the instrument 
of martyrdom of St. Andrew, to whom their church was dedicated. By the papal 
decree of 1244-5 the double title being firmly settled, it became necessary to repre- 



sent the two electoral bodies as a matter of course, for at a time when armorial 
bearings were of such real importance, neither body would have been willing to go 
without heraldic representation, and this was readily done by placing the saltire of 
Wells between the keys and sword of Bath, while the pastoral staff in the centre 
fitly signified the union of the two flocks under one shepherd. Thus it will be seen 
how beautifully the old coat of the See represented the office of the Bishop of Bath 
and Wells ; at the same time simple yet complete. It is true that at the Reform- 
ation the Priory being suppressed, has left the reconstituted Chapter of Wells alone 
surviving, still the double title of the Bishop remains ; while the historic interest 
of the ancient coat must far exceed that of the modern coat, with its saltire of two 
metals, for which there appears to be no reason or object, and which was probably 
originally derived from its being the arms of the Corporation of Vicars Choral, as 
pointed out under the account of their Common Hall. The only examples of the 
modern coat before the present century are the brass of Bishop Lake, 1626, a very 
poor affair, which has the saltire divided by lines, as no colours are indicated ; these 
may only be intended to give the idea of the saltire being raised. The remaining 
example is the monument of Bishop Still, but as the charges on the shields are not 
in relief, and the whole has been repainted in the present century, it is of no value 
for evidence. 

On the monument of Bishop Berkley the saltire has no indication of being 
divided, and the omission of the pastoral staff, keys and sword, are doubtless the 
result of carelessness, the whole tomb being very roughly executed and bare of 
ornament. Bishop Creyghton's tomb exhibits both the plain saltire and the coat 
of the See, as on the tomb of Bishop Bulwith. Ignorance, with a want of due care 
and interest, are the true source to which we can ascribe the modern meaningless 
coat. With all this evidence before us there cannot be the least hesitation in saying 
that the ancient and correct arms of the See of Bath and Wells are, az. a saltire 
surmounting a pastoral staff in pale or, betw. on tlie dexter two keys erect and ad- 
dorsed the bows interlaced, the one of the second the other arg., and on the sinister 
a sword erect of the last, hilt and pomel gold. 

Having gone thus fully into the question of the arms of the Bishopric, it will 
naturally follow here to say something about the arms of the Deanery, more espe- 
cially on account of the arms in the fourth shield in the window mentioned above. 
Strictly speaking, we should expect to find the Dean and Chapter using the simple 
coat of the gold saltire, and such was doubtless sometimes the case, as we have an 
example of the plain saltire in the roof of the south cloister, and also on the shield 
on the seal of Dean Herbert. The tomb of Dean Husee, who died in 1303, has 
several shields charged with the fretty coat of his mother the heiress of Yerdun ; 
these were only painted on, not cut, and from the faint traces of the colouring, and 
the similarity of the form of the lines of the frets and the saltire, it is difficult to say 
if in two cases the plain saltire did not impale the fretty coat. The tomb of Thomas 
Cornish, Canon and Precentor of Wells, who died in 1415, and that of Dean Gun- 
thorpe 1498, are the most direct evidence shewing that the Dean and Chapter did 
use the coat with the keys and sword as their arms, probably from their being 
joined with^Bath Priory in the election of the Bishop, and as they are now the 
representatives of the two Chapters, there appears no reason against their continuing 
to use this ancient coat as their proper arms, especially as it is more distinctive, the 


arms being, Az. a saltire or, betw. on the dexter tivo keys erect and addorsed, one of t/ie 
second, the other arg., and on the sinister a sword erect of the last, hilt and po met of 
gold. The addition of the keys and sword distinguishing more decidedly from the 
coat of the Corporation of Vicars, which was az. a saltire per saltire and quarterly 
counterchanged or and arg., as will be shewn more fully hereafter, and which came 
to be used in place of those of the See. 

(Fifth.) Arg. an afess az. betw. in chief three stags' heads cabossed or ( ? gu. or 
sa., as metal on metal is bad heraldry and against English usage), and in base as 
many pheons sa., a bishop's mitre or, bands arg. — the coat of Bishop Beckington. 
This coat with others is cut in the stonework of the chapel of Wykeham's School 
at Winchester. For notes on the formation of this coat see the heraldry in the 
roof of the cloister. 

(Sixth.) Quarterly of six, 1. Barry of ten arg. and az. six escutcheons sa., each 
charged with a lion ramp, of the first — Cecil. 2. Per pale gu. and az. a tree eradicated 
vert, with a lion ramp, against it arg. — Winstone. 3. Sa. a plate betw. three towers 
arg. — Carlyon. 4. Arg. on a bend cotised gu. three cinquef oil or. — Eckington. 5. 
Arg. a chev. betw. three chessroolcs erms. — Walcot. 6 as the first. Crest gone, motto 
Sero sed serio. Supporters two lions ramp. &rm. This is doubtless for Robert Cecil, 
first Earl of Salisbury, so created 4 th May 1605, and died 24 May 1612, ancestor of 
the present Marquis of Salisbury ; the cause of this coat appearing here being the 
fact that the Earl was at one time High Steward of the Dean and Chapter. 

(Seventh.) Quarterly, 1 and 4, Arg. a chev. betw. three cross-crosslets sa. 
— South worth. 2 and 3, Sa. a chev. betw. three cross-crosslets arg. — Dayes ; 
imp. Gu. a bend regulee betw. two cross-crosslets arg. — Pelsent. Under this 
shield is the date 1607. This coat is evidently that of Henry Southworth 
of Wyke Champflower, living in 1623, who was descended from Sir Gilbert 
Southworth of Southworth Hall, co. Lancaster, and his wife Elizabeth, dau. 
and h. of Nicholas Dayes of Salmsbury, co. Lane, Esq. He married Elizabeth 
dau. of John Pellsant of London, by whom he had two daughters his co-heirs, 
Jane married to William Bull of Shapwick, and Margaret married to Arthur Duck, 
D.C.L. ; and on the monument of Henry Bull in Shapwick church the arms are 
quartered, viz. 1 and 6 — or, three bulls' heads caboshed gu., Bull, 2 Southworth, 3 
Dayes; 4 quarterly gu. and arg., in the first and fourth a fret or, — Dutton. (The 
great grandfather of Henry Southworth, Sir Christopher Southworth of Southworth, 
married Isabel dau. and coh. of Sir Thomas Dutton of Dutton ; vide Visitation 
of Chester, Harl. Soc.) 5, gu. a bend embattled betw. two crosses crosslet arg., 
— Pellsant. 

An abstract of the will of this Henry Southworth is in the collection of Somer- 
setshire wills made by the Rev. F. Brown, and printed as a memorial of him. In 
it he styles himself, of Wells, Esq., but rightly citizen and mercer of London ; it is 
dated 23 May 1625, and was proved 12 Nov. 1625 by his daughters Margaret, wife 
of Arthur Ducke, and Jane, wife of William Bull of Shapwick, Esq. He names 
his ' brother Smith ' and ' brother Fellgate,' and desires to be buried near his late 
wife at Wyke Champflower. This church is really a chapelry in the parish of 
Bruton ; it is very small, consisting of chancel, nave, and north porch, on which is 
the date 1623, and is built on to the old manor house, of which manor he was lord. 

On the south side of the chancel is a mural monument to his memory, the in- 


scription stating that he was Lord of this Manor, and died the 24 May 1625, and 
that the monument was erected to his memory by Arthur Duck, D.C.L., and Wil- 
liam Bull, Esq. There are four shields of arms, first Southworth and Dayes quar- 
terly as above, with a demi-lion for crest ; second, the same arms imp. Pelsent as 
in the glass of the Cathedral window ; third, or, on a /esse ivavy sa. three lozenges 
arg., Duck ; fourth shield, or, three bulls' heads erased gu., Bull ; but the heads 
should be ca boshed, as shewn below. The above Arthur Duck was born 1580 at 
Heavitree near Exeter, Devon (son of Richard Duck of Heavitree and Joan his wife); 
he matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford, 24 th Oct. 1595, as son of a plebeian, 
became a Fellow of All Souls' College, Oxford in 1604, a Doctor of Civil Law in 
1612, admitted to the College of Advocates 25 Jan. 1633-4, was Chancellor of 
Bath and Wells, as also of London, M.P. for Minehead 1640. He lent £6000 to 
King Charles I., and had to compound with Parliament as a Royalist at £2000. 
He died in May 1649, and was buried at Chiswick. He was married at Wells by 
Bishop Lake to Margaret Southworth, as above, by whom he had two daughters his 
coheirs, viz. Martha the eldest, married first to William Duck, secondly to Nicholas 
Duck of Mount Radford, Exeter, her cousin, by whom she left issue a daughter 
Margaret, bapt. 14 Oct. 1654 at Heavitree, and married to Edward Mansell of Swan- 
sea, living 1695 ; and thirdly to Sir Thomas Carew of Haccombe as his second wife, 
and had a daughter unmarried in 1695. Mary, the second daughter, married Wil- 
liam Harbord, Esq., of Grafton Park, co. Northampton. The arms of Duck on the 
monument at Wyke Champflower are those granted by Camden Clarencieux in 1602 
to his brother Nicholas Duck, Recorder of Exeter and Bencher of Lincoln's Inn. 
There is a monument in Shapwick church which the inscription states was erected 
by William Bull to the memory of his wife Jane, eldest daughter and coheir of 
Henry Southworth of Wells, Esq. to whom he had been married 36 years and 3 
months, and who died 30 March 1657. The said William Bull, Esq., J.P., died 22 
Sept. 1676, aged 83. Arms, Or, three bulls' heads caboshed gu. Crest, a buWs head 
as in the arms. This is at the top of the monument ; a shield at the lower part, 
now blank, had formerly no doubt the same coat impaling Southworth and 
Dayes quarterly. 

(Eighth.) 1 and 4, Southworth ; 2 and 3, Dayes as above, imp. quar- 
terly 1 and 4, Sa. an eagle displ. with two heads arg., Lloyd. 2, Per /esse 
sa. and arg. a lion ramp, counterchanged ; the coat of Enion Efell, Lord 
of Cymllaeth, son of Madoc, last Prince of Powys Fadoc, from whom 
these Lloyds were descended. 3, arg. a chev. gu. betiv. three pheons sa., the two in chief 
fessways point to point, Kiffin, of co. Salop. Beneath this shield is also the date 
1607. This is the coat of Edward Southworth of London, merchant, who married 
Jane daughter of Edward Lloyd of Lloyenmayne, co. Salop. Of his children, the 
eldest was the above Henry Southworth, and Thomas was Recorder of Wells, and 
living there in 1623, having married Jane, daughter of Nicholas Mynne of Norfolk. 
He made a nuncupative will dated 8 Sept. 1625 and proved 20 Dec. following, in 
which he is styled ' of Wells '; it states that he left all he possessed to Jane his 
wife, and that he died at Barrow. Jane, the widow of the above Edward South- 
worth, married secondly Francis Gunter, citizen and skinner of London (whose first 
wife was Elizabeth, daughter of John Pelsent, merchant of London.) In Barrow 
Gurney church is a flat stone to the memory of this Thomas Southworth, which has 



the following inscription on it, u Hie jacet Thomaa Southworth armiger legis con- 

siliarius et in societate ora ciator, pacis et quorum justitiarius civitati Wellensi. A

This slab is now (1889) on the floor of the chapel on the South side of the 

Thomas Southwortlvs being buried here is accounted for by his relationship to 
the then owner of Barrow Court, Francis James, D.C.L., who had married Blanche 
Gunter, daughter of Francis Gunter, of London, by Jane daughter of Edward Lloyd, 
of Lloyenmayne, and widow of Edward Southworth, father, as named above, of Tho- 
mas and Henry Southworth, who were thus half brothers of Blanche James, 
and are both named in the will of Francis James as his brothers-in-law. The 
mural monument of Francis James in the same chapel of the church of Barrow 
has the arms of James (Sa. a dolphin emboived betw. three cross-cross lets or) impaling 
Gunter, Sa. three gauntlets arg. a crescent or.

The above is the facsimile of a brass against the west wall of this chapel ; 
never deeply cut, repeated polishings have rendered the lines so faint that it is 
almost impossible to get a good rubbing from it. 


Coleridge has rendered the sentiment of the inscription in the following lines, 
which are hung near : — 

" My worse part lives, my better buried lies. 
Death is my Life ; that he may live he dies ; 
To earth I trust these ashes and my woe ; 
Till to this dust I too as dust may go. 
'Tis thus disconsolate a widow sings ; 
T. P. her cousin hopes for better things." 

" J. D. COLEEIDGB, 1874." 

The idea of Coleridge is evidently that T. P. hoped to marry the widow ; the 
addition in italics is certainly singular. Fortunately we have records which throw 
some light on the further history of the widow and her kinsman. We owe a debt 
of gratitude to the kinsman T. P. for inscribing his hopes on the memorial of his 
predecessor, for the hope which seems contained in the last line was realized, and 
Thomas Popham became the second husband of Martha Willis, the widow of 
Humphry Willis, as appears from her own will and that of her second husband. 
Thomas Popham, gent., was second son of Alexander Popham of Huntworth, by 
Dulcibella dau. of John Bayly, and succeeded his elder brother Edward at 
Huntworth. He married first Grace dau. and h. of William Dale of Laxton, by 
whom he had, with others, Thomas, whom he makes his executor, Martha Popham 
being one of the witnesses. The will of this Martha Popham, dated 24 Sept. 1654, 
and proved 9 Nov. 1654, names "my children Humphrey and Walter Willis, and 
Humphry son of the said Humphrey Willis. William, John, and Ann children of 
William Bellamie, dec, my late brother-in-law. M r Thomas Popham my late 
husband's son a ring, and his wife Eleanor £10, or if she dies to her sister 
Ann Bellamy. My sister Thomasine Mills and grandchild Humphrey Willis to 
be executors." 

Unfortunately we find no Willis wills in the Wells Registry to help us. 

They appear to have been ignorant of their arms, at any rate none are on the 
brass. The arms of Carrick, (Or) a fess dancette oetw. three talbots pass, (sa.), is 
on an escutcheon of pretenee, shewing the wife to have been an heiress of the 
family of Carrick of Chipping Norton, co. Oxford. This family of Willis were 
probably the same as the one who took the name of Compton on inheriting the 
property of that family at Ringwood, Hants, and who quartered for Willis, Per pale

The following extracts from the Registers help to connect the family with 
Chipping Norton, but do little more.

Note. From a small brass. Arms, {Vert) a saltire eng. (arg.), a crescent for 
difference of a second son. It is not quite clear who this Henry Hawley was, 
unless, as would appear from the date and difference in the arms, reliable at 
that period, he was the second son of the head of the family, that is, of William 
Hawley of Awler, co. Somerset, by Margaret daughter of Thomas Tymbury of 
Upton, co. Devon. 

GUNTHORPE. An altar-tomb against the south wall of this chapel com- 
memorates John Gunthorpe, Dean of Wells. Rector of Ditcheat 
from 7 Jan. 1465 to 23 March 1473, was made Dean of Wells. He was also Arch- 
deacon of Essex, and Rector of Clay next the Sea, co. Norfolk, by Papal dispensation. 
It is inscribed, " Johannes Gunthorpe, huius eccl'ie Decan, a.d. mdccccxcviii."

for John Gunthorpe. 

The first and fourth coats in the second shield appear to be the family arms of 
the Dean, and appear quartered in the same way at the Deanery. The arms on 
the fourth shield is ascribed by Burke to Gunthorpe, but doubtless erroneously. 
The family appear to have come from Lincolnshire or Norfolk, and a John 
Gunthorpe was an executor of the will, dated 16 April 1398, of Sir Philip D'Arcy, 
Knt. ; and it is very suggestive and interesting that one of his co-executors was 
Robert Wyclyfe, whose family bore, Arg., a chev. sa. betw. three crosses botonee gu. 
White ermine spots being very likely placed on the chevron as the difference of 
a younger branch. There is a very slight trace of colouring on these shields.

Hengrave), whose will she proved 12 Feb. 1616 as Margaret Berkeley alias

DROKENSFORD. An altar-tomb with an alabaster effigy of a bishop in his 
robes, recumbent, is inscribed " Gulielmus Bytton, p'mus Episc' 
Bathon' et Wellens' mcclxix." This assignation of the tomb is proved to be wrong 
by the following evidence. Round the tomb are painted twenty-six shields, viz., 
Quarterly or and az., four birds' heads addorsed and counterchanged, Drokensford ; 
and, Erminois, on a chief gu. two stags' 1 heads caboshed or, Popham. The above coat 
does not appear in Glover's ' Ordinary,' Burke's ' General Armory,' or in Papworth's 
book, but it is proved conclusively to be arms of the Droknesford or Drokensford 
family from a seal attached to a grant from Philip de Droknesford, son and heir of 
Philip de Droknesford, to John de Godeley (Dean of Wells) and his brother 
Hamelin, of messuages and land in Ockhampton, in the parish of Wivelscombe, 
which he holds from his uncle John de Droknesford. Dated at Wells the 
Friday after the translation of St. Thomas the Martyr 1332. To this the seal of 
Philip de Droknesford is fortunately still attached, and nearly perfect. The arms 
are quarterly (colours not shewn on seals of that date and long after), and 
four swans' heads couped and addorsed, in chief a label of three points, the difference 



of an eldest son. Round the arms part of the legend, Phil : de Drokne 

Another grant from the same Philip calls him brother and heir of John de 
Droknesford, deceased, late Bishop of Bath and Wells. The coat of Popham 
appearing on the tomb equally with that of Drokensford is strong presumptive 
evidence on which to assume that his mother was of that family, perhaps the 
heiress of a younger son. These evidences add some points to Mr. Greenfield's 
pedigree (« Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' vol. ii., second series, p. 314), 
which, with these additions, as far as it immediately relates to Drokensford, we may 
reproduce here.

de Clyvedon, Knight, grants to his son John de 
Clyvedon, and to Maria de Droknesford, wife of the 
said John, lands in Shipham. 

The above is proof beyond question as to the arms of Bishop Drokensford, and 
satisfactorily identifies his tomb. It may be well to state that in the abstract of the 
Dean and Chapter Charters, by Mr. De Gray Birch, the arms are said to be a cross 
between four chessrooks, but it is difficult to understand how he made the mistake, 
as the seal is very clear. He also omits to say that the grantor is styled, son and 
heir of Philip de Droknesford. It is, "Q d scien' p'centes omnia ego Ph'us de 
Droknesford filius e heres Ph'i de Droknesford redi concess','' to John de Godele 
and Hamelin his brother, certain messuages and lands at Okhampton in the parish 
of Wyvelscombe, which he holds of John de Droknesford his uncle. The deed 
is dated at Wells on the Friday after the Feast of the Translation of St. Thomas the 
Martyr, 5 Edw. III. (1332), and it is witnessed by John de Clevedon and others. 
In a later deed this Philip styles himself brother and heir to the Bishop.

compound for his estates during the Civil Wars in 1646 by the description of 
William Walrond of Wells. He married and left several children. The youngest 
son Amos is buried, with a monument, in this Cathedral, and one of the daughters

A large white marble monument, with the figure of a man seated in a chair, by 
Chantrey, dated 1837, bears the following inscription : — 

Sacred to the memory of 
PHELIPS. JohnPhelips 

of Montacute in this county Esquire 

Descended from a line of ancestors 

whose names for two centuries and a half abound in the annals of this county ; 

he succeeded at an early age to his paternal estates 

and sustained the wonted hospitality of his house ; 

he soon became a most active and intelligent magistrate. 

In 1815 was High Sheriff and in 1819 

was unanimously placed in one of the chairs of the Court of Quarter Sessions, 

a station which he continued to fill, 

until acute disease suddenly stopped his career of usefulness 

on the 20 th of April 1834 at the premature age of 50 years. 

In testimony of the admiration and respect excited throughout the county 

by the able exercise of his judicial functions, 

in which though not educated to the law 

he was equalled by few, surpassed by none, 

this monument was erected by his surviving friends. 

Note. He was the eldest son of the Rev. William Phelips, by Anna Aletheia 
Elizabetha, daughter of the Rev. John Paget, Vicar of Doulting, co. Somerset, and 
married in 1816 his first-cousin Mary Ann, daughter of the Rev. Charles Phelips, 
and left an only daughter Mary, married to James Farquharson, Esq. Mr. Phelips 
dying without heirs male, the estates reverted to his nephew William, son of his 
brother the Rev. William Phelips. The arms used by this family are, Arg., a chev. 
betw. three roses gu., barbed and seeded ppr. Crest, A square beacon or chest on two 
wheels or, filled with fire ppr. But in the Herald's ' Visitation of Somerset in 1623 ' 
the arms entered with the pedigree are, Arg., a lion ramp, sa., collared and 
chained or. 

MARCEL. Near the last is a canopied tomb ascribed to Bishop Drokensford, 
but as it has been already shewn that beyond doubt his tomb is in 
another place, and there is nothing to shew to whose memory it was built, it might 
be, and very probably is, for John Marcel, who died in 1841, having founded 
a chauntry in this Chapel of St. Catherine. The legend on the edge of the tomb is, 
" Johannes Drokensford Episc' Bathon' et Wellen's mccoxxix. There is no effigy 
or arms ; a shield is outlined on the screen at the east end of it charged with 
a Holy Lamb. 

In the space at the back of the High Altar, between it and the Lady Chapel on 
the east and the chapels on the north and south, are the following floorslabs : —

For a quick penetration into 

Human character 

an unconfined benevolence 

A lively and undistinguishing raillery 

Without partiality and 

Without asperity except 

Where meanness or vice 

Seemed to provoke correction. 

Unshaken in the principles of his faith & 

uninfluenced by vicious example. 

In very early life 

He was seized with a disorder 

Judged incurable but which 

With determined fortitude 

and an habitual cheerfulness 

He continued to support 

Till death for which 

He had long been prepared 

Put a period to his sufferings 

In the 31 st year of his age 

and in the year of our Redemption 1764.

affection to his memory

ZOUCHE. In the window next the last one on south side are France and 
England quarterly, much mutilated. In the second one to the west on 
the north side there are two shields, one, Gu., ten bezants, Zouch, and Barry of six 
or and vert, charged with fourteen lozenges (or perhaps roundels), 4, 4, 3, 2, 1, 
counterchanged. This coat is very doubtful, and is probably made up, like a greater 
part of these windows, of odd pieces of very old glass. The coat is not given by 
Papworth, and looks unreal. 

Frequently repeated in the encaustic tiles covering the floor are the following 
coats, viz., Az., a crozier arg. in bend dexter, interlaced with two keys or in bend 
sinister, imp. Arg., a chev. gu. betw. three gutte de sang ; also Or, three chev. gu.,

Chapel of St. Stephen. 

DE HULLE. In this chapel was the Coombe Chantry, founded by Walter de 
Hulle, Archdeacon of Bath and Sub-Dean of Wells 1342. He was 
a benefactor of the Cathedral and Vicars-Choral ; Rector of St. Thomas 1325, and 
of Beauchamp 1328.

another, "Eilwinus, Epc. Wellen.," being for Bishop 
Ethelwyn, who succeeded in 1013. 

On the floor is the matrix of a large brass ; there is no sign of any shield 
having formed part of it, and the matrix is much worn.

Chapel of St. John. 

BISHOP BERKELEY. An altar -tomb in the north-west corner of this chapel, 
of coarse stone roughly cut, has the above arms repeated 
on three shields on the front. The inscriptions are incised on the top, the hollows 
being filled with lead or a black enamel. Round the edge runs the following 
(the | line marks the corners) : — 

Spiritus erupto | salvus Gilberto Novembre 

carcere | principis hoc aetheres Barkle Crepat 

annum dant usta salutis. 

In the centre, lengthways, this : — 

Vixi Videte s. praemium 
83 Luxi redux quieascribus 
pro captua gendo prsesulis 
Septem per annos triplices. 

Mr. James Parker of Oxford thus translates the inscription (that round the 
edge) : " Behold thy soul Gilbert Berkley (now) safe, having broken its prison 
bonds in the beginning of November, speaks from the sky (above)." These words 
give the year of its safety. The words referred to being those in the centre, which 
read, " I have lived, see my reward. I have shone returning to my rest. Having 
held the office of Bishop for thrice seven years." The figures 83 are cut at the side 
of the centre inscription, the words giving his age, 83, being Vixi, Luxi. Gilbert 
Berkeley was a native of Norfolk, but descended from the ancient Gloucestershire 
family, as the arms shew, the rose on the chevron being for difference. 



CREYGHTON. Marble sarcophagus, on top of which is the recumbent alabaster 
effigy of a bishop in full canonicals. On the front are three shields, 
viz., first the Bishopric, Az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff or, cantoned on 
the dexter by two keys addorsed the bows interlaced, on the sinister a sword (arg.) ; 
second, Erm., a lion ramp, (az.), crest, a cubit arm holding a dagger erect (all ppr.), 
Creyghton ; third, (Az.) a saltire (per saltire and quarterly counter changed arg. 
and or). At the end of the tomb, Per pale the dexter as the last, the sinister 
Creyghton as above, over the shield a bishop's mitre. This commemorates Bishop 
Creyghton, D.D. There was formerly a Latin epitaph, now in the south cloister, 
describing him to have been born at Dunkeld, in Scotland, and descended through 
his father from the ancient Lords of Ruthven, and through his mother Margaret 
Stuart from the latter illustrious family. The Bishop married Frances, daughter of 
William Walrond, Esq., of Sea in Ilminster, Somerset. The effigy is said to be a 
likeness of the Prelate, but the monument has been evidently partly destroyed, and 
no colours now remain on the shields still on it. In 1637 he was made Dean of 
St. Burian in Cornwall, but was deposed on the eve of the Civil "War, from which 
he was a great sufferer. He went into exile with Charles II., whose chaplain he 
was for fifteen years ; on whose return he was made Dean of Wells, and afterwards 
Bishop (19 June 1670, being then aged 77), which office he held until his death, 
21 Nov. 1672. There was formerly a mural monument to the memory of the 
Bishop's widow, with her arms, near that of her husband, but it has been removed 
into the cloisters. 

DE MIDDLETON Between the memorials of Bishop Berkeley and Bishop 
OR MILTON. Creyghton, under the north window, is the recumbent 

effigy of John de Middleton or Milton, Chancellor in 1337, 
from whom this is sometimes called Milton Chapel. It is without inscription. 

A large stone on which alone can be traced : —

Robert Creyghton, A.M. 

Died 18 Dec. 1732, aged 60. 


He was the second son of John, first Lord Poulett of Hinton St. George, by his 
wife Elizabeth, daughter and coheir of Christopher Ken of Ken Court, Somerset, 
Esq., and married Catherine, daughter of Dr. Robert Creyghton, Bishop of Bath 
and Wells. Both he and his wife are named in Bishop Creyghton's will (dated 
1672), who bequeaths to his daughter Katherine Poulett a ring given to him by 
the Queen of Sweden. Katherine Poulett is also mentioned in the will of her 
mother Frances Creyghton. The will of Francis Poulett, in which he is styled " of 
Wells, Esq.," dated 6 Sept. 1679, and proved 11 Feb. 1687 (P.P.C., 21 Exton), 
leaves all he has to his wife Catherine Poulett. Administration to the effects of 
Catherine Poulett, late of the Liberty of St. Andrew, Wells, widow, was granted to 


her brother Robert Creyghton, D.D., on 9 Nov. 1694. Among the parish papers 
of St. Cuthbert's, Wells, are two with the seal and signature of the above Francis 
Poulett as a Justice of the Peace, one dated 1G87. One has these arms on the seal, 
(Sa.), three swords in pile points in base (arg., hilts and pomels or), in chief a mullet 
for difference. Crest, An arm emb. in armour, the hand grasping a sword, all ppr. 
Supporters, On the dexter a ivild man ivreathed about the middle and temples with oaJc- 
leaves, on the sinister a woman also ivreathed with oak, all ppr. Motto, Gardez le 
fog. The supporters being those of his father Lord Poulett, the mullet should have 
been a crescent, he being the second son. The other seal is more correct, giving 
the same arms and crest, only with a crescent instead of a mullet for his difference, 
and omitting the supporters, to which he was not entitled. The document bears 
date 1686.

On the floor of this chapel, beside the memorial stone above, are a number 
of encaustic tiles. Some of them are on the edge of the raised part where the altar 
originally stood, the rest on floor near the Berkeley tomb. The following are the 
only armorial shields, the same coats being repeated several times. The other tiles 
are only ornamental devices. In all cases the colours of the tiles are not to be 

The coats are : 1, Three chevrons, doubtless De Clare {Or, three chcvs. gu.). In 
the Cathedral MSS. two Canons of this name are mentioned, Canon Roger de Clare 
in 1284, and Canon H. de Clare in 1292. 


2, Arg., a lion ramp, (gu.), crowned (or), iviihin a lord, (sa.) bezantee. This 
is the coat of Richard Plantagenet, second son of King John, created Earl of 
Cornwall, crowned King of the Romans 27 May 1257, and died in 1271. He 
married first Isabel, third daughter of William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, and 
widow of Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester. His son Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, 
married Margaret, daughter of Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, 
from whom he was divorced 22 Edward I. On the tile the lion is incorrectly turned 
to the sinister. 

3, Cheeky (or and az.), Warren. In one case this coat has a castle of three 
towers over it, in the other the space on each side of the lower part of the shield is 
filled by a like castle. The family of St. Barbe of South Brent (now Brent Knole), 
not very far off, bore, Chequy arg. and sa.; and John St. Barbe was Sheriff of 
Somerset and Dorset in 1460, but that date is much too late for the tiles, nor 
does there appear any reason to assign the tile to that family. The same arms 
accompanied by the castle is found at Cleeve Abbey. This coat was used by the 
descendants of Hamelin Plantagenet (natural son of Geoffry Plantagenet, Earl 
of Anjou, consequently half-brother to King Henry II.) by his marriage with 
Isabel, daughter and heir of William de Warren, Earl Warren and Surrey. 
His son William, Earl Warren and Surrey, married first Maud, daughter of the 
Earl of Arundell, and secondly Maud, daughter of William Marshall, Earl of 
Pembroke, by whom he had a daughter Isabel, married to Hugh, Earl of Arundell, 
and a son John, who succeeded him as fourth Earl, and married Alice, daughter of 
Hugh le Brun, Comte de la Marche, half-sister by her mother to King Henry III., 
and to Richard, Earl of Cornwall, above. 

4, (Gu.) three lions pass.-gard. in pale (or), the arms of King Henry III. 

5, Six fleurs-de-lys. Several families bore these arms, with the colours 
different, but none of them can be identified as connected with Wells at the 
date of the tiles, viz., Mortymer, Darley, Ireland, Payferer or Peyfere, and 

6, A chev. betw. three eagles displ, and on a chief a rose betw. two lozenges. 
Anthony a Wood mentions this coat as cut in the stone roof of a seat in Bath 
Abbey, and says it was made, he conceives, by Prior William Byrd. No ordinary 
of arms gives a coat like this for Byrd. Robert Fayery, gent., Portcullis Pursuivant 
of Arms, at the commencement of Edward VI. 's reign bore, Per pals or and az., a 
chev. behv. three eagles displ., all counter changed, on a chief gu. as many lozenges erm. 
The coat is still in the roof of Bath Abbey, over the chancel on south side and in 
the north aisle, east of the organ, thus painted, Sa., a chev. arg. behv. three eagles 
displ. or, on a chief of the last a rose inter two lozenges gu., and commemorates 
some benefactor to the fabric of both churches whose identity remains to be 
discovered. Unless, as seems most probable, it is the coat of Robert Fayremay, 
one of the executors of the will of Dean Husee, who was living in 1307. The tile 
here and stone shield at Bath both represent the same person. 

7, A cross, the ends terminating in annulets, within each a cross. This cannot 
be identified as any coat, unless it was the coat of Bishop William de Marchia, and 
is a modification of the coat, Arg., a cross fourchee gu., assigned in a roll of 
arms circa 1240-5 to De la Marche. This shield also occurs cut in stone in the 
roof of Bath Abbey Church. 



8, A sivord in bend dexter interlaced with hvo keys addorsed in bend sinister, 
Bath Abbey. 

9, Three bars and a canton. (Arg., three bars and a canton sa., Braunche.) A Sir 
Nicholas Braunch was party with the Dean and Chapter and Sir John de Acton 
of the one part to an indenture relating to land at Stathmore, 4 Edward II. (1304). 
Vide Cath. MSS. These dates point to the commencement of the fourteenth 
century as the period at which the tiles were made. 

These are the only armorial tiles; some are repeated, and there are others 
with only ornamental designs. Several have a tower and also a double-headed 
eagle displayed without being on a shield, which were the arms of Eleanor of 
Castile, first wife of King Edward I., and to those of Anne of Austria, wife of 
King Richard II. These remains shew that there formerly existed a much greater 
quantity of this beautiful paving, and we lament the loss of a great deal of historic 
interest, commemorating benefactors and the ramifications of family connections and 
influence. Among these we may venture to surmise were the arms of the Berkeleys, 
long a powerful family in Gloucestershire and Somerset, and the munificent founders 
of the Abbey of St. Augustine at Bristol, in whose church many of them lie buried, 
and, as we shall see by the pedigree, closely connected with the families whose arms 
are on the titles, and with Thomas Holland, Earl of Kent, whose arms are in 
a window of the South Transept, above the monument of the Viscountess de Lisle,

which but little remains, having these arms, Or, two bars sa. charged with three roses 
of tM first, two and one, Coward ; imp. Sa., three battle-axes erect arg., garnished or, Hall. 

The other tablet has a Latin inscription commemorating William Coward, Esq., 
of Lincoln's Inn, Kecorder and M.P. for Wells, who died 8 April 1705, the monu- 
ment being erected by his son William Coward. Another shield, much like the 
former in style, has these arms, Per pale of three : 1, Coward, as before ; 2, Hall, 
as before ; 3, Palg of six arg. and az., a bend gu. 

The above William Coward, Esq., married secondly Lady Philippa Annesley, 
daughter of Arthur, Earl of Annesley, and relict of Charles, third Lord Mohun ; 
her burial is recorded in 1724. 

Among the parish papers of St. Cuthbert, signed and sealed by Justices of the 
Peace, we find Thomas Coward, jun., J.P., on 4 April 1758 using this coat, (Arg.), 
two bars (vert) betw. nine martlets (gu.) ; Crest, A boar's head erased; being those 
of his mother Grace, daughter and coheir of Thomas Moore of Hawkechurch, co. 
Dorset, and Spargrove, co. Somerset. In 1703 (Sept. 25) William Coward seals 
with his proper coat and crest, viz., two bars charged with three roses. Crest, A 
demi-grey hound (sa.), betiv. the paws a stag's head caboslied (arg., attired or). 

Will of T. Roberts. 

Thomas Roberts of Wells, gent., named in the will of Francis Coward above as 
husband of his dau. Jane, made his will 1 April 1688, which was proved 23 June 
1688 by Jane his widow, who was to have with other lands the manors of Shepton 
Mallet and Wells. He names his brothers Phineas Bowles, Capt. Charles Collier, 
and Mr. William Sandes. His sister's son Thomas Harman ; brother Rev. Nathaniel 
Roberts ; and cousin Nicholas Sanford. 

Will of T. Coward. 
Thomas Coward of Wells, Somerset, gent. Will dated 4 June 1662. Being 
sick makes his will, and desires to be buried in the Lady Chapel in the Cathedral 
Church of Wells, near his father and mother as conveniently can be done. To the

wife and children ; to brother Francis Coward all his lands except his wife's 
jointure, he paying to M rs Hicks £500 ; to cousin Timothy Revell £150 ; to brother

crossbones on the other; brother Peirce and "my sister his wife;" uncle William 
James ; uncle Arthur Phillipps ; cousin Thomas Heath ; brother Samuel Heath. 
Proved at Wells 4 Feb. 1662. Seal, (Arg.), on a chev. gu. three martlets or, a chief of 
the second charged with a cannon dismounted of the third. This is really the coat of 
Leigh, whose heiress married Coward. (See "Visitation of Somerset, 1623," Harl. 
Soc, vol. xi., p. 30.) 

Will of F. Coward. 
Francis Coward of Wells. Will dated 6 May 1665 ; proved 24 March 1655. To be 
bur. in the Lady Chapel of the Cathedral Church of Wells. Brother-in-law D r 
William Piers ; kinsman M r Timothy Revett ; wife Elizabeth ; daughters Jane and 
Mary, both under twenty -four; Catherine widow of deceased brother Thomas 
Coward ; son Thomas Coward ; dau. Jane w. of Thomas Roberts of Wells ; and

In the Church of St. Lawrence, Winchester, were recently the remains of a hand- 
some mural monument for Thomas Coward, who married Grace, daughter and coheir 
of Thomas Moore of Hawkchurch, Dorset, and Spargrove, Somerset ; among the 
debris of this monument and others in the tower are the following shields : the coat 
of Leigh or Coward, as appended to the will of Thomas Coward above cited ; also, 
Arg., a cross eng. betw. twelve billets gu., Heath ; also, Gu., a lion ramp, per fess 
indent erm. and erminois, Stokes ; and, Az., a chev. betw. three pears pendant or, 
Orchard. The coat of Leigh seems to have been occasionally used by Coward in 
place of their proper coat, namely, Or, on ttvo bars sa. three roses, two and one, of the 
first. This last is cut on one of the battlements of Ditcheat Church with the date 
1667, and these initials, C. C, for Christopher Coward of Ditcheat. 

Unfortunately there are no old monuments at West Pennard, with John Coward 
of which place the Visitation pedigree commences, the nearest approach being a 
floorslab on which can just be traced a shield with helmet and mantling, but the 
charges on the shield and the inscription are quite gone.

In the Chancel Aisle of St. Cuthbert is a floorslab for Elizabeth wife of Arthur 
Mattocke, gent., dau. and heir-at-law of Charles Curtis of East Harptree, gent. ; 
she died 26 March 1708, aged 22. Thomas Roberts of this city, gent., who died 15 
April 1688, aged 36. Arthur Mattocke, died 12 March 1713, aged 39 ; and George 
Mattocke, gent., who died 5 Oct. 1736, aged 53. Above the inscription are these 

Arms, .... a chev. quarterly per chev betw. three fleurs-de-lis . . . . ; imp. 

{Arg.), three bulls' 1 heads caboshed (sa.). Crest, A bear salient. The impalement 
is incorrect ; there should be a chevron between the bulls' heads for the coat of 
Curtis ; as it stands it is really the coat of Walrond. 

The following abstracts of "Wills in the Wells Registry throw some further light 
on the pedigree and its connection with the Coward Family : — 

Will of C. Mattocke. 

Charles Mattocke of Wells, gent. Will dated 16 Sep. 1685 ; proved at

martlets, and on a chief a cannon dismounted, for Coward ; really the coat of Ley or 
Leigh. Crest, A bear salient. Burke gives for Matticke or Matoke of Hereford- 
shire and Yorkshire, Az., a chev. quarterly or and arg. betw. three fleurs-de-lis of the 
second. Crest, A bear salient per bend arg. and sa. Papworth makes the chev. 
quarterly per chev., thus agreeing with the stone in St. Cuthbert. 


Will of G. Mattocke. 
George Mattocke of Wells, gent. Will dated 17 Jan. 1688 ; proved at 
Wells 13 Jnly 1689. Names lands in Banwell, and leaves all to his wife Mrs.

Will of H. Clarke. 

Henry Clarke of Wells, Esq. Will dated at Wookey, 3 September 6 Eliz., 
a.d. 1564. To be buried in St. Cuthbert's, near dau. Elizabeth. To the church 
of St. Cuthbert 20 s ; to the fabric of the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew 10 s ; 
for the repair of the Chancel of the Parish Church of Locking 20 s ; to the Church 
Works of the Parish Church of Wookey 6 s 8 d ; to the Church Works of Kingston 
Seymour 3 s 4 d ; wife Elizabeth £100 and plate ; son William "my best greate salte

Sir Rowland Clarke ; friend M r William Horman, scrivener, of Wells ; cousin John 
Cawood (? Coward) ; friend William Watson. 

Codicil dated 7 May 1565. Master William Bowerman, Sub-Dean of Wells. 
Sir John Turner, Priest. Wife Elizabeth, mansion house in Wells ; Manors of 
Locking and Kingston to son William ; remainder to son Thomas ; remainder to son 
Harry ; remainder to Elizabeth Hill, daughter of my sister Alice, dec. ; remainder 
to Sir Rowland Clarke ; remainder to testator's sister Anne Claxton ; remainder 
over to right heirs ; Manor of Blackford, lands and mansion house at Wookey, 
lands at St. Decumens ; dau. Joane ; dau. Anthonye (sic) ; dau. Anne ; dau. Mary ; 
dau. Elizabeth, at 18 years of age ; father Thomas Clarke, late deceased. Proved 
11 April 1565, at Wells (book 14, fol. 107). The original does not exist, consequently 
there is no seal. 

In the Church of Wookey is an altar-tomb for the father of the above Henry ; 
on the top round the edge is this inscription, " Here lyth the bodye of Thomas 
Clarke Esquyer and Anthony his wyfe whiche Tho. was departid to Code the 2 day 
of Marche 1555, and also Anthony departid the . . day .... whose soules God p'do 


amn." At the west end of the tomb are these arms, (Or), two bars (gu.), and in chief 
three escallops (az.), Clarke ; imp. Quarterly — 1 and 4, (Arg.), three birdbolts paletvays 
in/ess (gu.), Bolton ; 2 and 3, (Arg.), afess betw. in chief two mullets and in base a 
crescent (gu.), Elder. This last coat is rather doubtful, it represents an early match 
of the old Yorkshire family of Bolton. It is much to be wished some light could be 
obtained regarding this match of Clarke. In St. Cuthbert's Church are the remains 
of a monument to one of this family, consisting of a recumbent effigy in armour, a 
large shield, Quarterly — 1 and 4, Clarke, as above ; 2 and 3, Three birdbolts -paletvays 
in fess, as above. Crest, A demi-eagle wings addorsed. Two smaller shields are 
charged, the one with this quartered coat, the other with Clarke alone. The follow- 
ing inscription is on a panel, "Clara Chara Clarcko A Dni 1587," a trefoil being 
placed between each word. The "Wills at Wells give us no further information 
immediately connected with this family. 

"Will of T. Claeke. 
Will of Thomas Clarke of Shapwick, husbandman, dated 2 April 1550. Names 
sons John, William, and Thomas ; daughters Joan and Edith ; wife Joan. Proved 
at Wells 6 July 1551. 

Will of J. Clarke. 
Will of John Clarke of Shapwick, dated 27 March 1582. Names sons William 
and Thomas ; daughters Agnes and Joan ; wife Margaret. Proved at Wells 27 
May 1582. 

Will of T. Clarke. 
The Will nuncupative of Thomas Clarke of Shapwick, husbandman, deceased, 
dated 22 November 1610. Names wife and children without their names. Wife 
Mary Clarke ; son William, aged two years ; William Clarke, brother of deceased. 
Proved 27 February 1610-11. William Clarke, Notary Public of Wells, is a witness, 
and is probably the person named in the following entry from St. Cuthbert's Register, 
" 1609, February 2, M 1 * Clarke wife of M r Clarke, the Proctter, buried." 

Will of J. Bolton. 
About this period there was a family of the name of Bolton existing in the 
county, as appears by the Will of John Bolton, dated 16 August 1546, proved at 
Taunton 15 September 1546. In it he desires to be buried in the Church of St. 
James's, Taunton ; leaves bequests to the Altars of our Lady St. Katherine and 
Holy Cross in that Church, and to the Church of St. Andrew at Wells. Names his 
mother Mow u Bolton ; brother John Bolton ; sister Alice Bolton ; dau. Isabell 
Bolton ; wife Johan, and the child she goeth with ; Gostly father John Moreys. 
Witness, Sir John Burgon, curate. Although this throws no direct light on the 
question, it is an indication as to the family of Tho. Clarke's wife. 

Will of W. Clarke. 
William Clarke of Wookey, yeoman, will dated 14 June 1709 ; proved at Wells 
19 Nov. 1709. Names s. William Clarke ; goods at Lovington ; two grandchildren 
William and Christiana Boulting ; s. Richard Clarke ; lands in the Manor of 
Northload ; dau. Susanna. Seal, W. C. 


Will of R. Clarke. 
Richard Clarke of Wookey, miller. Names house and fifteen acres of land more 
or less at Priddy ; three sons Thomas Clarke, Richard Clarke, and John Clarke ; 
their uncle John Stott ; their grandfather Thomas Stott, deceased ; dau. Betty 
Clerke ; Mary Marchant dau. of the late Rose Marchant of Wookey, deceased ; 
house and mill at Wookey. Witnesses, John Stott and John Ghitch. Seal, (Gu.), 
on a fess betw. three boars' heads (arg.) a lion pass. (sa.). Crest, A boar's head as 
in the arms, apparently used by John Gutch. 

Among the papers of St. Cuthbert Parish is one dated 23 June 1708, signed by 
Edward Clarke as a J.P., the arms on the seal being, Two bars and in chief three 
escallop shells. 


In the second window from the east end of this aisle are three shields, viz. : — 

1, Or, two bars az., in chief three escallop shells gules, over the shield a bishop's 
mitre, Bishop John Clark. This shield appears to be of glass, contemporary with 
Bishop Clark. These arms are ou the tomb of Thomas Clark 1555 at Wookey, and 
on a monument in St. Cuthbert's dated 1587. The same coat is ascribed to Clark 
of Shipley (sic, probably Shipham near Winscombe, which belonged to the Bishops of 
Bath and Wells) by Burke, etc., who also give for the Bishop the same coat, adding 
a horse's head, as mentioned more fully in the account of the shields in the Common 
Hall of the Vicars. 

2, Az., a saltire or. The glass of the saltire looks very old, but the field is 
undoubtedly new glass. Most likely the shield contained the correct arms of the 
See, as still in the opposite aisle, but being broken this was a cheap way of 
repairing it. 

3, Per fess or and arg., in chief a demi-rose gu. conjoined to a demi-sun in base 
or, from the top of the rose a demi imperial eagle sans wings sa. Burke gives as 
granted 14 July 1514 to William Knight, Prothonotary of the Apostolical See, and 
Ambassador from King Henry VIII. to Maximilian, and afterwards Bishop of 
Bath and Wells, this coat, Per fess or and gu., an eagle with tivo heads displayed sa., 
having on its breast a demi-rose and a demi-sun conjoined into one counter changed of 
the field. This blazon is not very clear, the coat is evidently that in the window, 
only that the red of the glass has faded, a fact which will be noticed more fully in 
the next window. The seal of Bishop Knight and the pulpit in the nave which 
was built \£or his monument, and beneath which he lies, have the same arms as in 
the window, no colours being shewn. 

In the next window, the third from the east end of this aisle, are three more 
shields : — 

1, Arg., gutte' d'or, on a chief or an annulet gu. betw. two leopards' faces az. 
langued of the first. The annulet looks more like a torteaux with a hole in the 
middle. This coat was originally, no doubt, Gu., gutte d'or, on a chief of the last a 
torteaux charged with a leopard's face of the second betw. two other leopards' faces az. 
This coat is not given by Papworth, and it very probably belongs to Dean 


Woleman, though the only thing that connects him with it is the inscription at the 
foot of the window. Among fragments in one of the other windows are two torteaux 
charged with a leopard's face gold, no doubt belonging to two examples of this 

2, Quarterly France and England, within the garter, the garter has been patched, 
and there are remains of supporters ; on the sinister is part of a dragon or, winged 
vert ; the arms of Henry VIII. The dragon should be gules, and on the dexter 
side. It is worthy of note here, as the royal arms are so well known and indisput- 
able, that the field is quite clear glass, the red in both quarters having completely 
faded away. This is also the case in the next shield, in both the coats of Knight the 
red having completely gone. An example of the Courtenay arms at Sheviock in 
Cornwall has the three torteaux quite colourless, while the yellow and blue remain. 

It would appear that old glass-workers sometimes used a colour that was not 
permanent, or used a thin coating of ruby glass, which was cut away when small 
charges had to be shewn ; such coating in some cases becoming detached by the 
action of air and weather in course of time, left clear glass where red ought to be ; 
and this must always be borne in mind when viewing a shield which has clear 
glass where colour should be, even if there are traces of diapering over the glass. 

3, Knight as in the previous window. 

At the foot of the window is this inscription evidently not perfect : — 

Ricarolus Woleman hugus ecclesie .... deo. opt. . . mar. . . 1537. 
Richard Woleman, L.L.D., appointed Dean of Wells in 1529, and died 1537, 
being buried in the cloister of St. Stephen's Chapel, Westminster. 

KEN. The fourth window from the East is modern, put up in memory of 
Bishop Ken, chiefly by the exertions of Dean Plump tre, the learned 
author of an exhaustive life of that prelate. It contains, with Scripture scenes, the full 
length portraiture of the Bishop ; beneath him this coat, viz., Az., a saltire per saltire 
and quarterly counterchanged arg. and or, cantoned ivith, on the dexter two keys 
addorsed the bows interlaced, on the sinister a sword erect, all of the second; imp. Erm., 
three crescents gu. This being no doubt intended for the See imp. Ken ; but in the 
coat for the See the pastoral staff is omitted, and the saltire made incorrectly of two 
metals instead of plain gold. Round the figure this legend, " Pastor bonus animam 
pro ovibus," and at the foot of the window, " In piam memoriam viri Sanctissimi 
delectissimi Thomas Ken,S.T.P., olim Bathon et Wellen episcopi, N. 1637, ob. 1711." 


JENKYNS. The stone Pulpit given by Dean Jenkyns has this inscription 
running round the upper part, "Deo dedicaverunt Ricardus 
Jenkyns, S.T.P., Decanus Wellensis et Veritas uxor ejus, A.S., mdcccliii." On the 
side steps of the pulpit, but in the North Aisle, are two shields, one with the arms of 
Jenkyns, the other Grove, as already described. 





On the floor near the Pulpit is a brass with this inscription 

Fenestram supra appositam

This is all there is of heraldry or memorial inscription in the Choir. 

Leading from N. Aisle to the Chapter House. 
A large canopied tomb with recumbent effigy, which has recently been re-painted 
and gilt, bears these arms and inscription :

The above is from a large monument of black and white marble, with a 
recumbent effigy of the Bishop's daughter, who caused the monument to be erected. 
It was formerly on the south side of the Choir. The Bishop was killed with his 
wife by the fall of a stack of chimneys on the night of the great storm, 26 and 27 
Nov. 1703. 

Arms : Sable, a saltire emb. counterembattled arg. 

Cathedeal Register. 

1703 Dec. 14 Richard, Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells, and his Lady were 




A canopied altar-tomb commemorates Thomas Cornish, Canon, 
Chancellor, Succentor and Precentor of the Cathedral, Eector of 
Lambrook, Vicar of St. Cuthbert and of Wedmore, Suffragan for Bishop Fox of 
Bath and "Wells, and for Bishop Hugh Oldham of Exeter. He was educated at 
Oxford, and held the titular bishopric of Tenos or Tine. There remains against 
the wall under the canopy the matrix of a brass, but only part of the fillet round the 
edge of the tomb, which carried the name and date, actually exists, and only a small 
part of that, inscribed with the following : " Cujus anime .... men .... Tinensis 
Ep'us tertio die mensis Julii Anno D'm° mcccccxiv." 

The copy of the inscription printed with the account of the monument for the 
use of visitors gives the inscription as, " Cujus animae propietur Deus supradictus 
D'n's Thomas Tinensis Ep'us tertio die mensis July An. Dom. 1513." This, it will 
be seen, varies in several points from what actually exists. 

On the front of the tomb are three shields. On the first a text ST with a wheat- 
sheaf ; on the third the letter C with another wheatsheaf, the initials of Thomas 
Cornish, the sheaves of corn, of course, alluding to his name. On the centre shield 
is this coat : On a chev. betw. three birds' heads erased a mitre. No colours are 
given on the monument, and this coat is not given by Burke or Papworth for this 
name, so that it is a great pity it does not exist in one of the windows. It may 
have been the arms of his mother's family, if she were an heiress, which he adopted, 
adding the mitre from his episcopal office. The birds' heads are hardly likely to 
have been Cornish choughs, as a canting coat or a garb would also have been 
introduced, and a Cornish chough taken the place of one of the garbs accompanying 
the initials. However this may have been, the coat is certainly intended as his 
own, but does not appear to have been used by any others of the same name. At 
the west end is another shield charged with the arms of the Dean and Chapter, the 
saltire between the keys on the dexter and the sword on the sinister, as in the 
window on the south of the Choir. The saltire is here, as elsewhere in the earlier 
examples, carved quite plain without any partition lines. 


We will now pass out of the door up the steps to the Chapter House. In the 
windows are three shields, namely : — 

I. Quarterly: 1 and 4, France (modern); 2 and 3, England. The royal arms, 
probably for Edward IY. 

IT. The same with a label erm. Probably for Edward, Prince of Wales, eldest 
son of Henry VI., or the eldest son of Edward IV. The grandmother of Edward IV. 
was a Mortimer. 

These shields could not have been before Henry V., as he was the first to use the 
three fleurs-de-lis instead of semee of fleurs-de-lis in the arms of France. 

III. Barry of six or and az., an inescutcheon arg., on a chief of the first three 
palets betw. hvo gyronnes of the second, Mortimer, Earl of March. In the glass, 
the inescutcheon is so large, the rest appears as a bordure. In one of the windows is 
an estoil within the horns of a crescent, per pale az. and arg, placed within a collar 
of SS. The estoil within a crescent was a badge of Richard I. It was also a badge 
of the house of Lancaster, and used with some variations by their adherents. 

The royal arms of James I. are painted over the Bishop's throne. Beneath this 
were painted on the wall two shields, all that can now be made out is a plain gold 
saltire on the shield to the left, the colour of the shield and any other charges are 
gone ; of the other shield part of the outline only remains. 

This completes the monuments and heraldry inside the Cathedral, thus carrying 
out the plan proposed at the commencement. We pass from the south transept into 
the cloisters, giving first the mural tablets, and then the floorslabs on each side suc- 
cessively. Before touching the monuments it will be well to note the heraldry, 
which are on bosses contemporary with the erection of the cloister. In the east 
cloister, erected by Bishop Bubwith, there are no arms, though there is a shield with 
his own coat on the outside. 

In the roof of the west side the coat of Bishop Beckyngton is several times 

Three pheons (Sa., three pheons arg.), Nicholl, an ancient family on the borders 
of Wales. William Niohol, Vicar of Woolavington 1452, ob. 1480. 

Three stags' heads cabossed (Arg., three stags'* heads cdbossed sa.), Henry Bowett, 
Bishop of Bath and Wells 1401-7. The resemblance of these two coats, when 
placed one above the other, to the arms of Bishop Beckington is so strong as to 
be almost conclusive evidence that his arms were formed from them. 

A betid betw. three eagles closed (Witham. Or, a bend betw. three eagles 
closed sa.), William Witham, Dean of Wells 1464-72. He was a younger son of 
Robert Witham of Grantham, co. York, who made his will 30 Dec. 28 Henry VI., 
by his wife Margaret, daughter of Richard Skendelley. 

A fess betw. three sivans rousant (Swann. Az., afess betw. three swans rousant 
arg.), Richard Swann, who died in 1487 ; he was one of the executors of Bishop 

Three sugar-loaves, and in chief a doctor's cap, Dr. Hugh Sugar, another 
executor of Bishop Beckington. 

A chev. betw. three leopards' faces, Bishop Stillington. A casual look at the 
shields with this coat, for there are two, might leave it doubtful if the charges were 



roses or leopards' faces, but, on careful examination, it becomes quite clear that they 
are leopards' faces. "We have some difficulty in accounting for the coat being here 
satisfactorily. The date is too early for them to be the coat of Godwin of Wells, 
and we look in vain for any one bearing this coat whose connection with the 
Cathedral is likely to account for his arms appearing here, unless it be a variation 
of the family coat of Bishop Stillington. He was a son of John Stillington of 
Nether Acaster, co. York, who bore, Gu., on a/ess arg. oehv. three leopards' faces or, 
as many fleurs-de-lys sa., the fleur-de-lys being a difference from the coat of Stilling- 
ton of Kelfield, co. York. In one of the windows of the chapel of the Yicar's Close 
we find this coat, Gu., a chev. arg., letiv. three leopards' faces or, and as at that time 
prominent members of a family made considerable variations in their family arms, 
this seems the most probable solution, especially as when the cloisters were building 
Stillington was Bishop, and was building a private chapel on the east side of the 
cloisters, in which he was buried, and which very unfortunately has long since 
disappeared, or it would doubtless have given us some interesting and conclusive 
heraldic evidences. Since this paragraph was written, identifying this coat as that 
of Bishop Stillington, an examination of the shields in the Yicar's Close has revealed 
one on which these coats of the chevron and the fess between the leopards' faces are 
quartered together, which leaves no doubt as to the coat in the cloister roof being 
that of Bishop Stillington. 

Four fusils, the shield being within the garter, inscribed, Hony soyt que malle 
pense. Gu., fusils conjoined in fess arg., Giles, Lord Daubeny, E.G., who died in 
1508, and already noticed. 

A saltire betw. two keys addorsed, the lows interlaced, on the dexter, and a sword 
erect on the sinister, the Dean and Chapter, repeated twice. A saltire, probably 
intended for the vicars. 

France (modern) and England, quarterly, within the garter and crowned. The 
badge of Bishop Beckington, a beacon-post with ladder, at the top a tun with fire 
issuing from it, in front of the post is often placed a motto ribbon, the beacon tun 
being a rebus on the name of Beckington.

To breath with truth the tributary line ; 

The mem'ry of departed worth to save 

And snatch the fading laurel from the grave 

And oh, my Sisters : peaceful be your rest 

Once more reposing on a Father's breast ; 

You whom he lov'd, whose notes, so lost, so dear 

Would sometimes wildly float upon his ear 

As the soft Lyre he touched with mournful grace 

And recollection's tear bedewed his face. 


Yes, most belov'd, If every grateful care 
To sooth his hours, bis every wish to share. 
If the fond mother, and the tender wife 
Could add fresh comfort to his Eve of Life ; 
If youth, if beauty, eloquence could charm, 
Genius delight him, & affection warm, 
Yours was the pleasing task from day to day 
Whilst heav'n approv'd and virtue led the way.

This stone and the one before it are for the most part now obliterated, the

This family claim descent from the ancient Lancashire family of Whalley of Whalley. 
The above Rev. Richard Chaple Whalley was the fourth son of the Rev. John 
Whalley, D.D., by Mary, daughter of the Rev. Francis Squire, Chancellor of Wells. 
He was born in 1748 and married Elizabeth Frances, daughter of the Rev. John 
Paine, Canon of Wells ; she died in 1795, aged 40. He died in 1817, leaving a son 
Richard Whalley, who married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Fordway, Esq., of 
Wells, and dying in 1830, aged 51, left issue 1, Richard, in holy orders ; 2, John ; 
3, Elizabeth ; 4, Mary. 

According to Burke's ' Commoners ' the arms of this family are, Arg., three 
whales' heads erased and erect sa., on a canton of the second a mascle of the first.

aud Lieut. Col 1 of the 2 nd Som* Eegiment of Militia 

ob 4 May 14 th a.d. 1884 Mk. 51. 

The Widowed Consort and the Orphaned Boy, 

Bereft of those pure fonts of earthly joy, 

She a fond Husband's, he a Father's love, 

Till reunited in the Realms above, 

Here claim the Sympathy which they, who know 

How death cau wound the living, will bestow. 

SHERSTON. Sacred to the memory of Margaret Sherston 

second wife of Peter Sherston, Esq. of this city 
and youngest daughter of 
STRANGWAYS. Thomas Strangways, Esq. 

of Shapwick in this county. 

In all amiable qualities and the christian virtues 

a pattern to her sex 

much esteemed by not a few 

by a loving husband and three children 

heavily deplored. 

After a lingering and painful illness 

which proved a distinguished Piety 

and exemplary Fortitude 

She died on the 10 th of January 1795 

aged 39. 

This monument is adorned with two female figures bending over an urn. Both 
this lady and her husband are named in the will of her mother Elizabeth Strang- 
ways of Shapwick, dated 9 June 1789. Also these arms per pale : — The dexter, 
Sa., three hunting-horns arg., Dodington, on an escutcheon of pretence a chev. erm. 
betw. three leaves ; the sinister, per fess, in chief, Sa., two lions pass, paly of six 
arg. and gu., Strangways ; in base, Or, a cross fiory sa. surmounted by a bend gu. 



Near this place lies the Body of 
SHERSTON. Doddington Sherston of this city, gent. 

who died November 23 rd 1751 aged 46 years. 

Likewise of Bridget his wife 

who died May 25 th 1792 aged 72 years. 

The thorny path of life she trod, 
Revered her duties and adored her God, 
To ev'ry station ev'ry credit gave, 
And Built on Happiness beyond the grave. 

SHERSTON. Also of William Tucker Sherston son of 

Doddington Sherston, Gent, and Bridget his wife, 

who died the 28 th of March 1770 in the 19 th year of his Age, 

whilst in the pursuit of Academical Learning 

with as much Improvement and Attention 

as his weak Habit of body would permit. 

His piety to God, and filial duty to his surviving parent 

was great and unaffected. 

An open and ingenuous Behaviour 

adorned by genteel manners, 

an easy cheerfulness 

Recommended by a pleasing modest countenance 

engaged him the love of all. 

Sweetness and equality of temper 

enabled his youthful and naturally lively mind 

to bear a lingering and painful disease 

with a wonderful composure. 



These happy endearments with untainted virtues 

fitted him thro' Jesus Christ 

for those blissful Regions 

where love and joy for ever reign 

Dear kindred shades accept this last adieu 

This tribute paid to virtue and to you 

Pe : Sherston April 1793. 

The coat here ascribed to Sherston is not given, nor indeed any other coat for 
that name, by Guillim, Burke, or Papworth. According to the latter authority, 
Robert Sherborne, Bishop of St. David's, in 1505, bore Arg., a pelican vert. Bishop 
Fox, circa 1492, also bore Az., a pelican on its nest or. And the same coat was 
granted to Sherman of Ipswich in 1715. The impaled coat is that of Tucker, viz., 
Az., on a chev. emb. at the top betw. three sea-horses naiant or, as many body 
hearts gu. 

DAVIS. Underneath are deposited the remains of Peter Davis Esq re 

Many years Recorder of this City 

and one of the Benchers of the Hon able Society of Lincoln's Inn 

A man eminently learned in the Laws of his Country, 

distinguished by a faithful Administration of them : 

Unambitious but Uniform 

DODINGTON. Religious without Ostentation 

In all things sincere. 

He was the son of John Davis gent. & Margaret 

the daughter of Christopher Doddington of Lincoln's Inn Esq. 

He married Susanna (the Daughter of Robert Bisse gent, of "Wilts), 

whose domestick and conjugal virtues 

were the comfort of her husband, 

the Blessing of her children. 

Out of a pious Regard for such excellent Parents 

This Monument was erected to her Memory 

by Peter Davis their only surviving son 

in the year of our Lord 1749. 


Arms are : Sa., three hunting-horns arg., stringed or, in the centre a cinquefoil or, 
Sherston ; impaling, Sa., three escallop-shells in pale arg., Bisse. The Margaret 

A A 


Dodington mentioned in the inscription was the second daughter of Christopher 

This is a large monument, and is the last on the east side of the cloister, but 
as the monuments are not in their original place it appears as well to give it here, 
following others of the same family. It is adorned with two nude infant boys, well 

The family of Sherston, like that of Bisse and some others, was at an early 
period connected with the clothworking industry, and although they did not enter 
a pedigree in either of the Heraldic Visitations of Somerset, the name occurs in the 
neighbourhood of Bath in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Mary, daughter 
of William Sherston of Bath, was the second wife of Thomas Pryn of Swanswick, 
and had remarried before 1623 to Edward Capell of the same place ; and Margaret, 
daughter of ... . Sherston of Bath, was married to John Clarke of Bristol, mer- 
chant, before 1570. 

From Anthony a Wood's MSS. we learn the following: Peter Sherston of 
Bath, with Walter Chapman and Thomas Wist, paid in 1603 money they had 
given and collected for the repairs of Bath Abbey. William Sherston, Alderman, 
and eight times Mayor of Bath, bequeathed £100 by annual instalments of 40s. 
out of the parsonage of Lyncombe. On the east wall of the chancel of Bath 
Abbey was formerly a monument to William Sherston, who died 26 Aug. 1621, 
with an epitaph, but no arms. 

They have used for arms a stork or heron standing on its nest, as on the monu- 
ment of Dodington Sherston, and this coat is also cut on a floorslab in Bath Abbey, 
impaled by Bushell, but the inscription is unfortunately gone. James Bussell 
married Mary Sherston, their daughter Mary being born in 1707. They have 
also used a chevron between three like birds, but these arms were never allowed, 
granted, or confirmed to them. After inheriting the estates of the Davis family, 
Peter Sherston applied for and obtained a grant of the arms granted to his 
maternal great-uncle Peter Davis ; itself a most singular grant, for it was the 
coat of Dodington of Dodington, which neither family in any way represented, 
with the small difference of a cinquefoil in the centre. The grant shews the 
poor heraldic knowledge and taste then existing even at Heralds' College itself, 
and is all the more singular, since we find a John Davis of Wells sealing 
documents 1698 as a Justice of Peace with his arms (Gu.), a griffin segreant 
(or) ; Crest, A griffin as in the arms ; whom there is no reason to doubt was 
the father of Jane, wife of William Sherston. This is further strengthened 
by the fact that the will of Matthew Baron of Milton in St. Cuthbert's parish, 
dated 1720, is witnessed by P. Davis, and sealed with the same arms and crest, 
the griffin segreant. The grant should have been the heron coat, with some 
addition, quartering the griffin of Davis. That this Welsh family should have 
settled in Wells is by no means strange, being the same as Bees Davis, who married 
the heiress of Maurice Rodney. Nevertheless this differenced coat of Dodington is 
now the lawfully recognised coat of Sherston. The grant, which by the courtesy 
of the family we are able to give, is as follows : — 


TO all and Singular to whom these presents shall come, Sir Isaac Heard Knight 
Garter Principal King of Arms, and Thomas Lock, Esquire, Clarenceux King 
of Arms of the South, East and West parts of England from the river Trent south- 
ward, send greeting. ®2&f)er£ as Peter Sherston of the City of Wells in the County 
of Somerset Esquire hath represented unto the most noble Charles Duke of Norfolk 
Earl Marshal and Hereditary Marshal of England, that his maternal great uncle 
Peter Davis of Wells aforesaid Esquire obtained a Patent of Arms under the Hand 
and Seals of John Anstis Esq. Garter Principal King of Arms and Stephen Martin 
Leake Esq. Clarenceux King of Arms, bearing date the sixth day of June 1745 to 
him and his descendants That the said Peter Davis left issue only two sons both of 
whom dying unmarried the armorial ensigns granted in the said Patent became 
extinct, and the said Peter Sherston became the heir general of that Family. He 
is therefore desirous out of respect to the said family of Davis of bearing the arms 
contained in the Patent aforesaid, and hath requested the favour of his Grace's 
Warrent to the Kings of Arms concerned for their confirming the same to him and 
his Descendants according to the Laws of Arms. And forasmuch as his Grace did 
by Warrent under his Hand and Seal bearing date the sixteenth day of May instant, 
authorize and direct us to confirm such arms, accordingly, UttOU) ge tfytVtfOtt 
that We the said Garter and Clarenceux in pursuance of the consent of the said 
Earl Marshal and by virtue of the Letters Patent of our several offices to each of us 
respectively granted under the Great Seal of Great Britain do by these Presents 
confirm to the said Peter Sherston the arms following, that is to say, Sable, a 
cinquefoil or, between three Bugle Horns Argent stringed of the second, and for 
the crest, On a wreath of the Colours a Stag couchant regardant or, armed and 
Hoofed Gules, charged on the shoulder with a cinquefoil Vert, as the same are in 
the margin hereof more plainly depicted, To be borne and used for ever hereafter 
by him the said Peter Sherston and his Descendants according to the Laws of Arms 
without the Let or Interruption of any Person or Persons whatsoever. Jht ©HttttCSS 
whereof We the said Garter and Clarenceux Kings of Arms have to the Presents 
subscribed our names and affixed the Seals of our several Offices this sixteenth day 


of May in the thirty third year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the third 
by the Grace of God King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the 
Faith etc., and in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninty three.

Garter Principal King of Arms. Clarenceux King of Arms.

It is strange the Probate Registry at Wells gives so little help in the way of 
Sherston wills. The wills of Isabella Sheathstone of Glastonbury, 1680, and William 
Sherston of Oharlecombe, 1733, are no good : that of Peter Sherston of Bath does 
little more ; it is dated 30 Oct. 1662, calls himself of Bath, clothier; names his 
dwelling house, his fuller's mills, his mill called Monk's mill, his brother John 
Sherston, brother William Sherston, brother Arthur Sherston, brother Thomas 
Sherston ; sisters Mary, Elizabeth, and Sarah Sherston ; cousin Arthur Sherston, and 
kinsman Thomas Neild of Westeaton ; proved at Wells 18 Dec. 1662. 

The accompanying pedigree is compiled from registers, monuments, and family

be placed in the pedigree.

From the Bishop's transcripts of parish registers we find that Thomas Bridges, 
Esq., and Mrs. Anna Rodney were married at Pilton 15 Oct. 1640 ; and the same 
authority supplies the baptism of Mary, daughter of Mr. Richard Bridges, at the 
Abbey Church of SS. Peter and Paul, Bath, on 14 Dec. 1624. While from the 
marriage allegations at Wells we learn that Mr. Arthur Flower applied for a licence 
for the marriage of William Merricke of Keynsham, merchant, and Hester Bridges 
of Winterburne, co. Gloucester, spinster, which was granted 30 Nov. 1677, the 
marriage to take place at Keynsham, Farmborough, Farleigh, or Compton Dando.

(Mural tablet.) 

This inscription was doubtless formerly part of the large monument, having the 
recumbent effigy of the Bishop, in the St. John Chapel. The statement in Burke's 
'Commoners' (vol. iv., p. 55), on the authority of this monument, that Bishop 
Creyghton was born at Dunkeld, is an error. The deduction from the inscription 
appears to be that the Bishop's father, Thomas Crichton, was a younger son of 
Crichton of Ruthven, but the arms being different, for Crichton of Ruthven bore, 
Arg., a lion ramp, az., on a chief of the last three lozenges of the first ; while the 
head of the family at that time, Viscount Frendraught, bore, Arg., a lion ramp, az., 
armed and langued gu., Ruthven being a cadet of Frendraught, but it is quite 
possible the Bishop discontinued the chief and made the field ermine for difference. 

By his wife Frances, daughter of William Walrond, Esq., he had : —

1739 ; Catherine, married Rev. Henry Layng, Archdeacon of Wells ; Frances,

of the Venerable John Turner, A.M., Archdeacon of Taunton 

and for the space of almost Forty year Canon Residentiary of this Cathedral 

during which period he watched with singular constancy 

over the performance of those solemn services to which it is consecrated. 

His unaffected piety displayed itself in his pastoral character, 

by the singleness of heart with which he discharged its important duties 

within these walls, by the simple and artless eloquence with which he enforced 

the Doctrines of Christianity in every relation of life, by the Purity, innocence 

and active benevolence of his whole conduct. 

In testimony of deep and affectionate veneration 

his three surviving children have raised this monument to his memory. 

Born May 31 st 1734. Died March 28 th 1817.

Beneath this stone are deposited the mortal remains 
FRANKLAND. of the Rev d Roger Frankland, M.A. 

of Muntham in Sussex, Canon of this Cathedral, Rector of Yartington 

and Yicar of Dulverton both in this Diocese. 

He was the youngest son of Ad 1 Sir Tho s Frankland Bart, of Thirkleby in Yorkshire, 

was born on the 17 tb Nov r 1762, and married the 14 th of June 1792 

Catherine youngest daughter of John, 9 th Lord Colville 

of Culross in the kingdom of Scotland & by her he had twelve children. 

To a highly cultivated & accomplished mind which shone forth 

COLVILLE. even in his last days, he united 

all the warm & benevolent feelings of the heart, his truly 

gentlemanlike & engaging manners, 

his ready and lively wit, added to his universal knowledge made him 

a brilliant and cherished ornament to society. 

In his intercourse with mankind, he was strictly honourable & upright in 

the fulfilment of the relative duties of life. 

None could exceed him for he was a good son, a tender faithful & 

affectionate husband, a fond and indulgent parent. 
Tho' blest with talents calculated to shine in public life he early 

retired to the duties of a village pastor, 

which he faithfully discharged for twenty six years beloved and 

respected by all his parishioners. 

The mild patience & resignation with which he supported his last illness 

united to his affectionate & touching deportment 

to his weeping and surrounding family must ever be present to their 

recollection & endear his memory to their hearts. 

Finally, beloved & regretted by all who knew him he departed this 

life the 25 th of March 1826 

and (to use his own words) in the full hope of the mercies of God thro' 

the redemption of Jesus Christ. 

This monument is erected & inscribed to his memory by his devoted wife 

& deeply afflicted widow.

By Forces under the command 


Lieutenant General Sir David Baird, Bart., G.C.B., K.C. 

Fell in Battle 

on the eighth day of January 1806 

at the head of the Grenadiers of his regiment, 

He had dislodged from a commanding eminence 

a very superior number 

of The Enemy 

When he received 

a mortal wound, . 

in the thirtyeighth year of his age, 

after a zealous service 

of sixteen years. 

In testimony of esteem 


a brother officer 

whose life was as honourable 

as his death was glorious 

this monument has been erected 

by his 

Companions in arms 


Arms : Per chev. emb. or and vert, three eagles displ. counterchanged. Crest : An 

eagle displ. or. 

Beneath this Tablet 

repose the remains of 

Joanna Slade 

FOSTER. relict of the Rev d Robert Foster. 

Of humbleness of mind, benevolence 

of heart, placidity of temper, patient 

endurance of bodily pain, untireing 

watchfulness, anticipating the wants and 

alleviating the trials of a beloved husband 

when his sight had become darkened. 

If these and other graces united as they 

were with utter self renunciation and 

full and implicit reliance on Christ 

as her only Saviour and Redeemer are 

characteristics of the people of God 

we may humbly hope that she is now 

numbered among those of whom it has been declared : 

" They shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, 

in that day when I make up my jewels." 

She was born 12 th July 1778, 

and died 22 Nov r 1846.

Prebendary and Priest Vicar of this Cathedral 

and Rector of Sutton Bonington, Notts 

He was born May 24 th 1766. Died Sep. 20, 1836. 

A good soldier of Jesus Christ 

he studied to shew himself approved of G-od 

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. 

Gentle unto all men, yet neglected not 

to speak the things that become sound doctrine 

with all authority. 

His eyesight weak from his birth 

waxed more and more dim with advancing years, 

till at length 

those who looked out of the windows were darkened 

but a light sprang up in the darkness, 

while those around shed the silent tear, 

contemplating his painful loss, 

a holy joy would brighten up his countenance 

so that of him it might truly be said, 

he kissed the rod that smote him. 

Thy sun shall no more go down ; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself : for the Lord shall 
be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Isaiah lx. 20.

of their sorrow were comforted by the belief 

that he was one of those little ones 

of whom Christ said, 
Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.

BURLAND. In memory of John Berkeley Borland 

son of the Honorable Sir John Burland Knight 

one of the Barons of His Majesty's Exchequer 

and of LaBtitia his wife the Daughter of William Berkeley Portman, 

and Ann only Daughter of Sir Edward Seymour of Maiden Bradley, Bart. 

Speaker of the House of Commons 

and Comptroller of the Household of Queen Anne. 

He was educated to the profession of the law, but quitted it at an early period 

and became a Magistrate in his native county 

in which situation his knowledge talents and assiduity 

soon raised him to the most eminent place 

which to the end of his life he filled with distinguished reputation. 

In a crisis of public danger he accepted the command of a military corps, 

and devoted himself to its improvement and discipline, 

with an energy which had always belonged to his character. 

In the year mdccxcix he was elected to a seat in the House of Commons 

where until his death in November mdccciv he discharged his trust 

with exemplary zeal and integrity. 

To his uniform and disinterested benevolence, 

the liberality and independence of his mind and the urbanity of his manners, 

the friends who loved and lamented him bear the most sincere testimony. 

At the top is a medallion carved in high relief of a female figure supporting the 
deceased, towards whom the skeleton Death stretches his hand. Round this is the 
cypress, scales, and cross, and an open book on which is inscribed, " My flesh and 
my heart faileth : but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 
Ps. 73 v. 26." 

Arms : 1 and 4, Erm., on a chief emb. gu. three cinquefoils arg. ; 2 and 3, 
Arg., a/ess betiv. three lions couchant gard. gu., Morris ; on an escutcheon of pretence, 
Gu., six cinquefoils and a chief indented arg., for Farr ; but this appears to be an 
error ; the coat does not occur in Papworth, nor does Burke give it for the name of 
Farr ; it appears to be founded on the coat of Farra of Norfolk, viz., Arg., on two 
bars gu. six cinquefoils or, a chief indented of the last. He married the daughter and 
heir of John Farr, Esq., of Stock House near Sherbourne, and became of that place . 


In a ' Survey of the "Western Counties,' published in 1791, which contains the arms 
of subscribers, the same coats are assigned to him, except that the second and third 
quarters are given as, Erm., on a fess az. three boars' heads couped or (Lewis of 
Stoke, co. Dorset). His wife died 12 Feb. 1802, aged 48.

LUKIN. George William Lukin, D.D. Dean of 

this Cathedral, who died 28 Nov. 1812 aged 74. 

In Nurseling (otherwise Nutshelling) Church, Hants, is a monument to the 
Rev. John Lukin, M.A. (son of the Dean), Prebendary of Wells, and thirty-seven 
years Rector of Nurseling, who died 15 Dec. 1846, aged 64, erected by his eldest 
son John Mayow Lukin. Arms : Arg., a lion ramp, gu., debruised by a bend gobony 
or and az., Lukin ; imp. Quarterly sa. and arg., in the first quarter a lion ramp, of 
the second, Byng. This was his second wife, the Hon. Lucy Elizabeth, eldest 
daughter of George, sixth Viscount Torrington, by his first wife Elizabeth, daughter 
of Philip Langmead of Plymouth, Esq. 

In the same church is a tablet for his first wife Emma Easton Lukin, who died 
30 April 1813, aged 23. Arms : Lukin as before ; on an escutcheon of pretence, Per

In a small work, printed in 1814, termed • A Concise History of the Cathedral 
Church of St. Andrew in Wells,' by John Davis, Verger of the Cathedral, a cata- 
logue of the monuments is added — at least so it professes to be. It is useful as 
giving the position of the more prominent monuments before their removal to 
their present positions, but it is very imperfect. From the descriptions it is plain, 
as their present appearance indicates, that most of the accessory ornaments in the 
way of pillars, etc., have been destroyed in the removal to the cloisters. The 
following four memorials are given which are not now to be found : — 

In the Lady Chapel an ancient stone to the memory of Sir John Newton, 
Bart., who died 4 Feb. 1661, with this couplet : 

Hoc non jacet corpus loco 
Sed hie jacet pars pro toto. 

Near the altar was the following on a brass plate in Old English characters : 
Hie jacet Mayr Johes Spekington, hujus ecclesise 

canonicus et subdecanus, qui obiit penultimo 

die Mensis Decembris Ano 1462. Cujus animee 

propitietur Deus. Amen. 

Under a seat near St. Mary's Chapel is a brass plate to the memory of Sir 
John Bernard, Treasurer and Residentiary of this Church, who died 30 April 1459. 

Not far from thence lies Wm. Witham, Sub-dean, who died July 16, 1472. 

In the South Aisle : 

Of the Soule of John Braham, Canon, 
Good Lord have mercy. 




This is the old burial-ground, and is enclosed by the cloisters.

There are also seven graves without any memorial over them. 



Over the archway of the gatehouse, on the inside, is a shield carved in wood of 
the arms, a plain saltire for the See, impaling Oreyghton, as in the Cathedral. 

Over the entrance porch of the Palace itself is a modern shield of Bath Priory : 
Az., two keys addorsed the bows interlaced in bend sinister, with a sword in bend 
dexter ; imp. Az., a saltire per saltire and quarterly counter-changed or and arg. ; 
lines being given for the colours. The same arms are repeated on a shield of the 
same age over the fireplace in the hall. 

A large stone shield near the foot of the grand staircase has the arms of 
Bishop Beckington, the shield being contemporary with him, as are also two shields 
of the same size and shape in the crypt, one of which is charged with the rebus 
of that Bishop, the flaming beacon with a scroll across the post, the other shield 
bearing the ancient arms of the See, viz. : A saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in 
pale betw. the two keys on the dexter and the sword on the sinister. This has 
been painted, the field blue and the charges all gold. 

In the Crypt are also the following : — A shield, boldly cut in wood and now 
fixed over the fireplace, has, Az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale betw. 
on the dexter tivo keys erect and addorsed the bows interlaced, and on the sinister a 
sword erect all or ; imp. Qu., a pelican in its piety or ; over the shield a mitre, at 
the sides the date 1663. The painting is modern. These are the arms of Bishop 
William Pierce, only the field should be az., not gu., according to Papworth's 
Ordinary, etc. 

In the windows of the Crypt are : Gu., on a bend arg. three trefoils vert, in chief 
a martlet arg., Hervey, with the difference of a fourth son ; imp. Arg., three chevs. 
gu. betw. as many martlets sa., Singleton. Crest : A leopard pass. sa. bezantee, 
gorged with a coronet and chained or, in the dexter paw a trefoil vert. Supporters : 
Two leopards sa. bezantee, gorged with coronets and chained or, for Lord and Lady 
Arthur C. Hervey. Gu., on a bend arg. three trefoils vert, Hervey. Another 
window has the crest of Hervey as above. The remaining three windows have 
respectively the modern and incorrect arms of the See, the initials A. C. H., and a 
bishop's mitre. 

In the east window of the Palace Chapel are three shields and some broken 
pieces of old glass fitted together ; the shields are modern, and are : 1, Az., a saltire 
or ; 2, The modern and incorrect arms of the See ; 3, The same as the last, imp. 
Erm., on a bend eng. betw. two cocks gu. three mullets or pierced of the second, Bishop 
Law. These same arms (No. 3) are repeated in a staircase window at the other 
side of the house. The arms of Bishop Law in the Chapel were once blown out 
across the terrace below, and fell uninjured on the grass. 
The following arms are on portraits in the gallery : — 

Cardinal Wolsey, Sa., on a cross eng. arg. a lion pass. gu. betw. four leopards' 
faces az., on a chief or a rose of the third betw. two Cornish choughs ppr. 

Bishop Montagu, Gu., a sword in bend sinister arg. hilt andpomel or betw. two 
keys in bend dexter addorsed the bows interlaced, the lower of the second, the upper 


of the third, the See of Winchester ; imp. Arg., three fusils conjoined in fess gu. 
within a lord, sa., Montagu. Bishop James Montagu was translated from Bath 
and Wells to Winchester. He was the fifth son of Sir Edward Montagu and 
brother of the first Earl of Manchester ; he died unmarried in 1618. His arms 
are on his tomb in Bath Abbey, and carved on the great west doors there. 

Bishop Walter Curie, the See of Winchester as above; imp. Vert, a chev. 
eng. or. The Bishop was advanced to the See of Winchester in 1632, and his 
son Sir Walter Curie was created a Baronet in 1678, but dying without issue that 
title became extinct. On the picture the arms look more like Sa., a chev. arg., 
being much discoloured; the above coat is from their monuments at Soberton, 

Bishop Thomas Godwin, the modern arms of the See ; imp. Or, two lions pass, 
sa., on a canton of the last three bezants, Godwin. The picture has the appearance 
of having been recently painted or restored, and as a consequence the wrong arms 
of the See are given. 

It is rather singular that on the portrait of Cardinal Wolsey his family arms only 
are painted, while those of Curie and Montagu have the arms of the Diocese of 
Winchester, shewing that they were painted after both Bishops had been translated 
to the higher See, the garter round the arms leaving no doubt as to this fact. 

It must be owned that, though so interesting from many points as an example of 
Early Domestic architecture, the Palace is disappointing from an heraldic point, 
largely due to the bad usage it has received in past times from the hands of the 

In the Library are the arms of Bishop Bagot, viz., Erm., two chevs. az. ; imp. 
Arg., on a cross gu. five escallop-shells or, Villiers. This is in the corners of the 
ceiling, and carved at the top of some of the bookcases. 

In the stonework of an oriel window is cut (Arg.), orCachev. (sa.) three escallop- 
shells (of the first), Bishop King. This coat, now nearly obliterated, is cut 
impaled by the coat of the See on the exterior stonework of the west window of the 
north aisle of Bath Abbey. 


This building exhibits less heraldry than might be expected from its size, age, 
and from its having been the residence of a long line of Deans, though no doubt 
much was swept away during the Puritan ascendancy, when the Deanery was 
occupied by Cornelius Burgess, nor was it spared the supposed improvements by 
which old houses were so often spoiled in the early part of this nineteenth century. 

The arms of the Deanery do not once occur. 

Taking the exterior first : on the battlements of the north wall of the yard and 
facing the main gateway is a shield bearing the arms of William Wykeham, Bishop 
of Winchester, viz., (Arg.), two chevronels (sa.) betiv. three roses (gu.) ; of the rose 
in base a trace only remains. 

On the right of the main entrance to the house is a large panel with three shields, 


two being charged with the badge of Dean Gunthorpe, a pistolet with the leather 
belt for carrying it, the centre shield being charged with the sun, on it a rose. 

On the north side of the house there are eight shields on which these badges 
are repeated. There is on this side in a piece of new stonework a shield with this 
coat, (Arg.), a chev. betw. in chief two mullets pierced and in base an annulet (sa.) ; 
Crest, From flames, a demi-phoznix (ppr.) ; the arms of Dean Plumptre's family. 

In the interior of the house, on the stone arch over what was the roof of an 
oriel window on the south side of the old dining hall, but now forms a doorway of a 
passage leading to the drawing room, are two shields, both charged with the 
quartered coat on the tomb of Dean Gunthorpe, namely : 1 and 4, A chev. beko. 
three hand grenades or guns, all within a lord. eng. ; 2 and 3, A chev. betw. three 
lions' heads erased. These two shields are very interesting, and valuable evidence 
of the arms of Dean Gunthorpe ; it confirms the remarks made regarding the arms 
on his tomb (p. 75), and leaves no doubt that the three guns were his own arms. 

In the hall are the following shields : — 

i. Quarterly of six : 1, Or, on a pile gu. betw. six fleurs-de-lys az. three lions pass, 
gard. in pale of the first, coat of augmentation granted by King Henry VIII. to 
Seymour ; 2, Gu., two wings in lure or, Seymour ; 3, Vaire, Beauchamp ; 4, Arg., 
three demi-lions ramp, gu., Fisher ; 5, Per bend arg. and gu., three roses in bend 
counterchanged, Mac Williams; 6, Arg., on a bend gu. three leopards' faces or ; on the 
centre of the quarterings a martlet sa. for difference — at least that is what it should 
be, being the arms of Lord Francis Seymour, Dean of Wells, whose monument has 
been mentioned (p. 190), but this has been reversed by the glazier, making the 
whole read backwards, besides which it was only painted on the glass, and the 
colours are mostly gone ; the fourth quarter is quite gone, and supplied by a piece 
of glass with a fancy pattern on it. 

ii. Arg., a chev. betw. in chief two mullets pierced, and in base an annulet, allsa., 
Plumptre ; imp. Gu., a lion ramp, regard, or, Maurice. Motto, Sufficit meruisse. 
Being the arms of the Very Rev. Edward Hayes Plumptre, M.A., D.D., the late Dean, 
impaling those of his wife's family. The Dean was the third son of Edward Hallows 
Plumptre, Esq., eldest surviving son of Charles, second son of Septimus, sixth son 
of John Plumptre of Nottingham, by his wife Annabella, eldest daughter of Sir 
Francis Molyneux, Bart. The Dean married in July 1848 Harriet Theodosia, 
youngest daughter of the Rev. Michael Maurice of Notting Hill, London. Mrs. 
Plumptre died 3 April 1889. Correctly speaking, there should be a fieur-de-lys 
charged with a crescent on the chevron for the proper difference of his father, and 
another crescent in chief for his own difference. There is a pedigree of the Dean's 
family in Burke's ' Landed Gentry.' 

in. Az., two keys in bend sinister and a pastoral staff in bend dexter, all or. 
Round it is the motto : Esto quod es. The Priory of Bath bore this coat, only 
with a sword in place of the pastoral staff. 

This completes the heraldry in the Deanery. 



In what is known as the Vicar's Close we shall find much that is most interest- 
ing heraldically. 

The Vicar's Close was built by the executors of Bishop Beckington in the 
fulfilment of that prelate's will, and consists of dwelling-houses for the priests, 
vicars, and vicars-choral ; a common hall over the entrance gateway ; a chapel, with 
a library over it ; these, with the exception of minor alterations and restorations, 
remain in their original state. 

We will first take the common hall, which is reached by a flight of stone stairs 
immediately to the left on entering. This hall has been divided, and the main part 
has been used as the Library of the Theological College. On the north side of the 
room are three windows, two small ones and a large one of four lights. In the 
first one is a graceful figure of St. Catherine holding her wheel, in the next window 
is the head of a bishop. In the upper part of the large window are two small 
figures, a bishop holding a book, and a priest vicar, from his mouth a label on 
which is the word " Misere." Below these are four shields : the first is, Vert, a 
cross botonne'e arg. ; in the first quarter a scrap of glass has replaced a demi-virgin 
and child ; the arms of Glastonbury Abbey, the virgin having been removed doubt- 
less as papistical. The next two shields are gone, and supplied by plain coloured 
glass. The fourth shield has, Or, a lion ramp. gu. within a lord eng. sa., Pomroy. 
The lion is so patched as to be hardly recognised. Round each shield is a circular 
ribbon or garter, on which is this legend : " Domino Ric'o Pomroy Ih'us merci p' 
me." It is very vexatious that the two central shields in this and the opposite 
window should have been broken, and not a trace left by which we can come to any 
satisfactory conclusion as to what was there ; if we might hazard a guess, we should 
say they were the See, the Deanery, the Corporation of Vicars, and the Priory of Bath. 

In stone over the window is a shield carved and painted, Az., a saltire per 
saltire and quarterly counter changed or and arg. Turning to the large window on 
the opposite side of the room, to the left, close to the window, is a stone shield 
charged with the coat just given, but with the addition of the name "Ric'us 
Pomeroy," thus : in chief, Ric'us ; on the dexter, Po ; on the sinister, me ; in base, 
roy. In this window are also two small figures, namely, St. Peter with the keys and 
St. Paul with the sword, and four shields, of which two are gone, and their place 
taken by coloured glass. Of the others, one is Pomeroy, as in the other window, 
the last of the four is Glastonbury as above, the whole of the first quarter being 
replaced by plain green glass to get rid of the virgin and child. These shields have 
the same inscription round them with slight variations, thus : " D'no Ric'o Pomroy 
mercy orseti p' me." In stone over the window is carved and painted the same 
shield as over the window on the north side already mentioned. The only other 
coloured glass is a female saint in the further window of this (south) side. 

On the stone fireplace are five shields, with a ribbon which passes behind them, 
and on which is this inscription ; the asterisks mark the points at which the shields 
come over it, or rather interrupt it, being cut in the same stone : "In * tete £CftJ8 

fje'at Cu * me Wm IXimW * pomrog (SMtem * &altof 3fy& &me * n;" 


which like the windows breathes a pious desire for the repose of the soul of Richard 
Pomroy, who was a considerable benefactor of the vicars and master of the 
Cathedral fabric. The shields are painted with these arms : — 

L Or, tivo bars az. surmounted by a horse's head erased erm., and in chief three 
escallop-shells gu., Clark. 

ii. Per f ess gu. and arg., on afess. az., betw. in chief three bucks' heads or, and in 
base as many pheons sa., a bishop's mitre of the third, Bishop Beckington. 

in. Quarterly : 1 and 4, France, modern ; 2 and 3, England. 

iv. Az., a saltireper saltire and quarterly countercharged or and arg., surmounting 
a pastoral staff in pah of the second, and betw. on the dexter two keys the boivs inter- 
laced, and on the sinister a sword erect, all of the last, for the See. 

v. Or, a lion ramp. gu. armed and langued az. within a bord. eng. sa., Pomeroy. 

These shields have never been carved ; the more pity, for we should then have 
at any rate the outline of what was originally put on them, for there can be little 
doubt that the arms now painted on the shields are of much later date. 

Now this being the case, it is most desirable, particularly on account of shields 
one and four, to ascertain as nearly as possible the date of the painting. In the first 
place, from the fact of the arms of Clark being there, we may safely conclude that 
the date cannot be earlier than A.D. 1523, in which year John Clark was consecrated 
Bishop, and as we shall see presently it was probably the arms of a later member of 
that family ; then again, they must have been painted before the close of the reign of 
Queen Elizabeth, as the royal arms of the Tudor sovereigns are displayed, the arms 
being altered after the accession of James I. Secondly, the character of the painting 
itself points to the close of the sixteenth century. 

Taking the shields in order : the first shield is usually assigned to Bishop Clark. 
Unfortunately, no example of his seal exists, or at any rate, after much inquiry, has 
been accessible, but his arms are in a window of the Cathedral already noticed, 
which there is no reason to question was put up in his lifetime, and there certainly 
is no horse's head in that shield. We know that bishops were fond of differencing 
their coat armour from that of their family, but generally with something allusive 
to their office, and a horse's head certainly bears no reference to episcopal rank. 

On the other hand, Bishop Clark had a relative, Sir Rowland Clark, who was 
knighted by Edward, Duke of Somerset, in the camp before Roxburgh in 1547, to 
whose knightly rank the horse's head would be a much more appropriate augmentation. 
Members of this family were connected with the neighbourhood quite late enough 
to account for the knight's arms being painted here in place of, or in mistake for, 
the arms of Bishop Clark. Sir Rowland Clark was living in 1565, as shewn by his 
being named in the will of his cousin Henry Clarke of Wells (p. 142), and who may 
in some way have been a benefactor to the Vicars. At any rate, without very good 
cause to the contrary, this seems the most reasonable explanation for this shield, 
especially as there appears no reason for the arms of Bishop Clark being put there 
when all the evidence points to the painting being executed at a later date. 

The next shield in order is that of Bishop Beckington. This shield is most 
interesting, as it varies from the examples that exist in coloured glass. Before we 
can accept it as setting at rest the question as to the colours of the arms, we must 
consider the point as to whether the painter was taking a liberty with the arms to 
make them conform to what had then become an acknowledged rule, that metal 


must not be placed on metal or colour on colour, or had he before him coloured 
examples we do not possess ? If the former, it appears more probable that he would 
have made the stags' heads red. On the other hand, we know that the old glass 
painters did use a thin coating of red glass where they wanted to place small figures 
on it, cutting them out and letting the main glass, either plain or stained yellow, 
show through, and which coating is also known to have sometimes cracked and 
slipped away ; unquestionable examples of which we can point to, as, for instance 
the royal arms in the north aisle. As this last may very well have been the case 
in the instances we have of Beckington's arms in glass, we may assume that he bore 
the field of his arms, Per f ess gules and argent. 

The third shield has the royal arms of Queen Elizabeth correctly painted. 

The fourth shield gives us the earliest example we have of the cross saltire formed 
of two metals, combined with the keys, sword, and pastoral staff. This shield, when 
taken in connection with the seal of the Vicars, helps materially to prove the date at 
which these shields were painted, and also that the coat is an unauthorized one. The 
seal of the Corporation of Vicars was cut soon after the reconstruction of the whole 
Cathedral body by Queen Elizabeth in the twenty-fourth year of her reign, and 
displays these arms : A saltire per saltire and quarterly, betw. on the dexter two keys 
erect and addorsed, the lows interlaced, and on the sinister a sword point in chief and 
surmounting a pastoral staff in pale. The legend round it leaves no doubt about its 
being the seal of the Vicars. Here undoubtedly we have the origin and cause of 
all subsequent confusion ; the Vicars assume the ensigns of the Bishop, only re- 
taining their bi-metal saltire ; then, to make it more simple and save trouble, the 
smaller charges are omitted, and we have the Bishops using the arms really be- 
longing to the Vicars. 

This shield on the chimney-piece of the Common Hall was not put there as the 
arms of the See at all, but really to represent those of the Vicars. 

The fifth shield bears the arms of Pomeroy. These are the undifferenced arms 
of the head of the family of Pomeroy of Berry Pomeroy in Devonshire. Richard 
Pomeroy was one of the Canons of the Cathedral, and Master of the fabric, but his 
place in the pedigree yet remains to be ascertained for certain. As there is no trace of 
any difference on the arms in the glass, he was probably a son of the head of the family. 

Taking everything into careful consideration, we may safely conclude that these 
shields were painted after the reconstruction in the reign of Elizabeth. 

Coming down the stairs and again into the open, the shields on the fronts of the 
houses next attract attention. 

On the house in the corner to the left are the arms of Henry Parker, the well- 
known archseologist of Oxford, who gave a great deal of assistance in the restoration 
of the close — viz., Or, three inescutcheons sa., each charged with a pheon of the field- 
This shield being coloured and gilt. 

Against the chimneys which run up the fronts of the houses are the arms of the 
See — viz., A saltire surmounting a pastoral staff, betw. on the dexter two keys addorsed 
and on the sinister a sword erect. In one instance, on a house on the west side, and 
not many doors up, this coat has been reversed in the course of restoration. 

In panels on the fronts of the houses occur successively repeated the following : 
Bishop Beckington ; Three sugar loaves and in chief a text % for Hugh Sugar ; 



A fess betw. three swans, wings raised, Richard Swan ; A chev. betw. in chief two 
roses and in base a talbot pass., John Pope. 

Eichard Symonds, in his ' Diary,' mentions as being in a window of an old honse 
at South Petherton these two shields : Arg., a chev. sa. betw. in chief two roses gu. 
and in base a talbot pass, of the last ; and Gu., a saltire vaire betiv. four mullets arg., 
Hill ; imp., Arg., a chev. sa. betw. two roses in chief gu. and in base a talbot pass, 
of the last. This is evidently the coat which appears in the Close, and supplies the 
colours which are there wanting. This coat has not been recorded for Pope, and 
its origin would be interesting to ascertain. Did it denote fidelity to the memory 
of benefit derived through the foundations of William of Wykeham, to which he 
may have been of founder's kin ? On the house in the north-west corner of the 
Close are four large fifteenth-century tilting shields ; they are charged thus : — 

i. Beckington. 

ii. The saltire alone, The Vicars. 

in. The saltire, pastoral staff, keys, and sword, The See. 

iv. Quarterly: 1 and 4, A chev. betw. three leopards' faces; 2 and 3, On a fess 
betw. three leopards' faces as many fieurs-de-lys. 

This shield is particularly useful as evidence, the first and fourth coat is the 
personal coat of Bishop Stillington, the second and third being that of his family, 
and with the help of the glass in the chapel proves that this prelate used a personal 
coat, placing a chevron between the leopards' faces instead of the fess and fleur-de- 
lys of his family, as mentioned under the account of the cloister roof on pp. 161, 162. 
Pugin, in his 'Examples,' vol. iii., calls the charges in the first and fourth 
quarters blackamoors' heads and omits the chevron. The chevron, it is true, is 
very doubtful, being very indistinct, while the fess is quite clear ; but there is not 
the slightest doubt about the leopards' heads. The family coat of Bishop Stilling- 
ton leaves no doubt that it is his arms. He seems to have wanted to adopt a 
personal coat without the hackneyed mitre being introduced ; he could not simply 
leave out the fleur-de-lys, as it would then be the coat of the elder line of his family ; 
so he may in the first place have taken the fess away, and subsequently added the 
chevron. It may be that this shield was originally put up without the chevron, 
an attempt being made to add it after, but the space between favours the idea that 
it was originally there. This and the two examples in coloured glass in the 
adjoining chapel are most interesting instances of indecision in altering a family 
coat. There being few coats, slight variations were more admissible. 

On the bell turret of the Chapel is a shield of Beckington imp. the See, the 
saltire and staff with the keys and sword, and over the shield a bishop's mitre. On 
the wall of the chapel facing the north Liberty is a shield with the arms of the 
See as just described, and another with St. Andrew holding his cross. 

On the outside of the old oak door of the Chapel are carved four shields, namely : 

i. (Sa.) two bars and in chief three ro undies (plates), Hungerford. 

II. A saltire surmounting a pastoral staff, betw. on the dexter two Tceys addorsed 
and erect, the bows interlaced, and on the sinister a sword erect, the See of Bath 
and Wells. 

in. (Or.) A chev. (gu.) charged with a mitre, Bishop Stafford. It is singular 
that here and in a contemporary window in the Almshouse Chapel in Chamberlain 
Street, the engrailed bordure used as their proper difference by the Bishop's line of 


the Staffords is omitted, although it appears with the mitre on the chevron on 
his seal. 

iv. A fess eng. betw. twelve holly leaves, 4, 4, 4, in quadrangles, Bishop 

In the windows on the south side of the Chapel are six shields : — 

i. Arg., on a fess sa. betw. twelve holly leaves vert, 4, 4, 4, in quadrangles, a mullet 
of third, Bubwith. In the glass the leaves are yellowish. 

ii. As the last, without the mullet. 

in. Or, a bend betw. six martlets sa., Luttrell of Dunster Castle. 

iv. Or, a fess az. surmounted by a bend gu., Elwes. This is modern. 

v. Gu., a chev. erm. betw. three leopards' 1 faces arg., probably Stillington. 

VI. Gu., a chev. arg. betw. three leopards' faces or., Bishop Stillington. 

Over the door is a window with these two shields : Az., a saltire per saltire and 
quarterly counterchanged or and arg., surmounting a pastoral staff betw. on the dexter 
two keys addorsed the bows interlaced, all of the second, and on the sinister a sword 
erect of the third, hilt and pomel gold. Intended for the See. The other shield 
has St. Andrew holding his cross. These last two are modern. 

In this Chapel are two memorial inscriptions on brass plates, one under the 
East window reads : 
John Hothershall Pinder, M.A., Principal of Theology in this College 1840-1865. 

The other, on the South wall : 

Arthur Nugent West, M.A., Student 1872, died at Zanzibar 1874. 

Passing upstairs to the Library, we find in stone over the fire-place the mono- 
gram, T. B., surmounted by a mitre, between two beacon fires, the basket being 
formed of a barrel or tun, thus forming a rebus for Bishop Beckington — beacon-tun, 
a mode of representation dear to the brains of ecclesiastics about the fourteenth and 
fifteenth centuries. This is a replica in plaster from the roof of the west cloister. 
At the tops of the jambs we have on one side the crest of Elwes, Five arrows, 
four in saltire and one in pale, entwined by a serpent; on the other side the initials, 
E. L. E., for the Eev. Edward Leighton Elwes, M.A., who took a great interest in 
the restoration of this building. 

The Rev. E. L. Elwes is the seventh son of John Meggot Elwes, Esq., of Bos- 
sington, Hants, by Emily Elizabeth, daughter of the Rev. Dr. Causton, Canon of 
Westminster, and of Turweston, Bucks ; which Mr. J. M. Eiwes was the second 
son of the second son of the well-known miser John Meggot, grandson of Sir George 
Meggot, who took the name of Elwes on inheriting the estates of his uncle Sir 
Hervey Elwes, Bart. The arms in the window of the Chapel below are really those 
of the head of the male line of the Elwes family, and should be duly differenced for 
this branch. See Burke's ' Extinct Baronetage.' 

In the East window we have in the centre the Royal arms as used from James I. 
to James II. inclusive, with supporters, helmet, crown, and crest, viz., 1 and 4, 
France and England quarterly ; 2, Scotland ; 3, Ireland ; and this motto, Beati 
Pacafici. To the north of this these arms : Az., a lion ramp, arg., over all on a bend 
ermines three dexter gauntlets of the second. Crest : A demi-lion ramp, or, holding a 
battle-axe arg. Motto : Fidelis ad urnam. For the Rev. Canon Church, M.A., 
Sub-Dean of Wells, formerly for a time Principal of this College. There should be 
a crescent in the arms for difference.

On the South side of the Royal arms this coat : As., a stork's wings expanded 
arg., beaJc and legs or, on the breast an annulet sa. Crest : From a coronet or, a lion's 
paw holding a club ppr. Below the arms, Anno D'ni 1876 ; over them, B. G-. For 
the Rev. Prebendary Gibson, M.A., Principal of the Theological College. 

Prebendary Gibson being a fourth son, the mark on the heron is incorrect, it 
should be a martlet. Furthermore, though this coat has been considered by the 
family as their arms, yet there appears to be no such coat recorded for any family of 
Gibson, and the crest is that of the ancient family of Gibson of Lancashire, etc., 
traditionally said to be descended out of Scotland. Prebendary Gibson's family has 
also, in common with the Lancashire family, the tradition that one of the Popes 
had granted to the family the Papal arms for some special service ; this would be 
the coat : Gu., three keys or, fessways in pale, wards to the dexter ; used by the 
Scotch families of Gibson generally, which is a variation of the arms of the See of 
Rome : Gu., three keys or, two in saltire and one in pale. We may, therefore, fairly 
conclude that an accidental error has occurred in stating the arms to be one instead 
of three herons, as they correctly should be.

The old Archdeaconry, lying on the North side of the Cathedral, once the 
residence of Polydore Virgil, and which has long been in the hands of laymen, 
having been purchased by the trustees of the Theological College of Wells, has 
been restored and altered for the purposes of the College very judiciously under 
the direction of Mr. Edmund Buckle of London, as architect. Over the entrance 
have been carved the ancient arms of the See, restoring to the proper place the 
ensigns of Bath, the keys and sword on each side of the saltire, with the pastoral 
staff, a shield already so often blazoned it need not be formally repeated. 

On the eight shields, held by angels forming the corbels of the ancient roof of 
the old hall, now the library, have been painted the following arms, representing 
persons mainly instrumental in the original founding of the College, the three 
Principals, with the Bishop and Dean at the time of the restoration. 

Commencing at the north-west corner they are : 

i. Erm., on a bend engrailed betw. two cocks gu. three mullets or pierced of the 
second, in chief on the bend an annulet arg., for the difference of a fifth son. For 
James Thomas Law, Esq., Chancellor of Lichfield and Coventry, and Master of St. 
John's Hospital, Lichfield, eldest son of Bishop Law. He was born 8 Dec. 1790, 
and died 22 Feb. 1876, having married 16 Dec. 1820 Lady Henrietta Charlotte 
Grey, eldest daughter of the sixth Earl of Stamford and Warrington, by whom, 
who died 25 Feb. 1866, he had, with others who died young, three sons and two 
daughters. See ' Peerage ' for pedigree. 

ii. Per bend gu. and erm., in chief a demi-Catherine-tvheel arg., Brymer. No 
pedigree has been supplied ; the name will be found in the Cathedral. 

HI. Quarterly : 1 and 4, Or, a bend eng. betw. two lions ramp, gu., Dickinson ; 


2 and 3, Arg., three bars and a canton gu., Fuller ; on an escutcheon of pretence, 
Arg., on a bend sa. three roses of the first, Cary. For Francis Henry Dickinson, Esq., 
of Kingweston, co. Somerset. For pedigree see Burke's ' Landed Gentry.' 

iv. Pinder. As in a window in the library over the Vicar's Close Chapel, ap- 
pended to the description of which a pedigree is added, except that the leopards are 
altered to lions ramp. arg. No authority was supplied by the family for either coat. 

v. The ancient arms of the See ; imp. Gu., on a bend arg. three trefoils vert, in 
chief a martlet for difference, Hervey. For the Right Hon. and Right Rev. Lord 
Arthur C. Hervey, now Bishop of Bath and Wells. 

vi. Az., a saltire or betw. on the dexter two keys addorsed, one arg., the other of 
the second, and on the sinister a sword erect arg., hilt and pomel gold, the Deanery ; 
imp. Arg., a chev. sa. betw. in chief two mullets and in base an annulet, all sa., on the 
chev. a Jleur-de-lis arg. charged ivith a crescent gu., and a mullet gu. in chief, all for 
diff., Dean Plumptre. See the Deanery. 

vn. Church. As in the library over the chapel in the Vicar's Close, adding, A 
crescent in chief arg., the difference of a second son. For Canon Church, Sub-Dean 
of Wells. A pedigree is given with the description of the shield. 

viii. Az., three herons arg., in chief a martlet for difference. For Prebendary 
Gibson, now President of the College. A further notice of the arms, with a pedigree, 
is given in the account of the shields in the library just referred to, where a pedi- 
gree appears. 

Over the entrance of an ancient house, close to the East end of the Lady Chapel, 
known as the Precincts, are three shields of the tilting form, the centre is blank ; on 
one of the others are two keys in saltire, the remaining bearing two swords in saltire ; 
if really heraldic, the former are the arms of the See of Gloucester, and the latter those 
of the Bishopric of London, but they very probably are only fanciful. 

On the gateway connecting the Vicar's Close and the Cathedral we have the 
arms of Beckyngton twice, once supported by angels. 

Over the archway, leading from the market-place to the Cathedral Green, were 
the Royal arms, the arms of Bishop Beckyngton, and his badge or rebus, which last 
is also on a panelled projection on the inner side. The arms are almost obliterated. 

In the roof of the gateway, leading from the market-place to the gatehouse of 
the Bishop's Palace, the arms of Beckyngton are cut in front of his rebus as if hung 
on the post. The shields on the front facing the market-place are quite obliterated. 

From the wall just inside this gateway a stag springs supporting, or being sup- 
ported by, a shield charged with the arms of Beckyngton, which projects almost 
horizontally below it. In the same wall is also a panel with the rebus of Bishop 

This exhausts the heraldry within the Cathedral Precincts, and brings our task 
to a close ; not without some good result we trust, by having brought to light some 
things that had been overlooked by previous writers, bringing evidence to bear for 
the elucidation of obscure or debated points ; while some facts have been preserved 
which, if not quite lost, would become increasingly difficult to obtain. 


The following extracts from the Parish Register of St. Cuthbert, Wells, though 
not connected with any existing monument, as they are examples of the way in 
which the Cathedral Register and that of St. Cuthbert have been mixed up, may 
deserve a place here, though they do not profess to be exhaustive, and other 
instances will be found among extracts of particular families : —

There were two Canons, the Rev. John Paine, who died in 1774, and the Rev. 
Thomas Payne, who died in 1797, of entirely different families. Inquiries have not 
been very satisfactory in completing the pedigree to any extent, but the following 
helps to distinguish between them : —

The following, from an inscribed tablet on the wall of Llanbedr Church, 
except the line referring to himself, is from the pen of Canon Payne : — 

" Sacred to the memory of Mary the Beloved wife of Henry Thomas Payne, 
M.A., Rector of this parish and Canon Residentiary of S* David's. 

"In pious hope she departed from this world of trouble on the 21 st of April 

1828 aged 58. 

" Here sleeps my Mary in her narrow cell, 
How soon we all must follow, who can tell I 
Christian I Remember that by God's decree 
All nature sinks into eternity. 

Look round this Hallowed Fane ; the scene displayed ; 
Like Life's short landscape, mixed with light and shade, 
Like Life itself, uncertain in its day, 
For time rolls on and none can bid it stay. 
The Hill, the Vale, the Wood, the brawling stream, 
All lost in time shall vanish like a dream, 
Nay, time shall come when Heav'n and Earth, destroyed, 
Shall sink in chaos, and become a void. 
All things shall perish, and shall man presume 
To think himself exempted from the Doom ? 
Presumptuous Mortal ! Soon must come the day 
When Thou Thyself, the last great debt shall pay. 
How many lie within this Holy ground, 
Entranced in Death till the last trump shall sound 1 
How many daily pass to Death, 
To-day they breathe, to-morrow lose their breath ; 
The Rich, the Poor, the Great, the Gay, the Brave, 
All, all are hastening to the silent grave. 
Then Man, vain Man, prepare to kiss the rod, 
To hear thy Judgment and to meet thy God. 

H. T. P." 

" Also the above Henry Thomas Payne, died April 22 nd 1832, Aged 73." 

In the same churchyard is buried the sister of Canon Payne, with a tombstone 
bearing the following inscription : — 

»}• In memory of Sarah Judith Payne, who died at Crickhowel the 15 th Feb. 
1858, Aged 97. 

Lord, now letteat Thou Thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen Thy Salvation. ȣ.

The following pedigree, compiled from the Cathedral MSS., adds some points to 
Mr. Ellacombe's pedigree in the ' Herald and Genealogist,' vol. iv., p. 195, esta- 
blishing the place in the pedigree of the two Bishops of Bath and Wells of this 

Arms of this family of Bytton or Button : Erm., afess gu. 



Robert de Button, son of Kobert de Button. 
Vide Ped. Fin., 1237. 

John de Button, Senior Prebendary of Comb, 1268. Had a Grant, as brother of the Bishop, of 
two parts of the Prebend of St. Decuman in 1249. By his will leaves money for the good of 
his soul, and the soul of his brother William, Bishop of Bath and Wells. Died before the 
Vigil of St. Nicholas, 1273. 

I I I 

Sir Adam de^ William de Richard de Button, Vicar of St. Cuthbert, Wells ; witness to a 

Button. Wit- Button, first Confirmation by the Dean and Chapter of a Grant by Bishop 

ness to a of the name William, dated Stephen's Day, 1248. On Tuesday after the 

Grant of Wil- Bishop of Feast of St. Thomas, 1242, he was one of a deputation to the 

liam. Bishop Bath and monks of Bath to act with the Chapter of Wells to elect a 

of Bath and Wells; con- Bishop. William, Prior of the Hospital of St. John, Wells, 

Wells 1273. secrated promised Richard de Button, Precentor, in return for certain 

1248 ; died benefits, a full service yearly for the souls of the said Richard 

1264. de Button, of Bishop William de Button, and their ancestors. 

Sir John de=^ Philip de Button. Inspeximus by the Dean and Chapter of a Grant by 
Button. Bishop William de Button to Philip de Button of a burgage in Wells, etc., 

in 1251. Tn Jan. 1260 leave was granted by the Dean and Chapter for the 
celebration of divine service in his Chapel at Melsbury ; John, Vicar of St. 
Cuthbert, consents provided all offerings of the said Philip and his family 
at the four great feasts, and those he is bound to pay as a parishioner to 
the mother Church, saving a penny a day for a chaplain, be paid to said 
John. For this he pays two shillings a year. 

William de Button, elected Bishop of Bath and Wells 10 Feb. 
1267. By deed dated St. Matthew's Day, 1273, grants all the 
service due to him from his brother Thomas de Button, Arch- 
deacon of Wells, to which Sir Adam de Button and Philip de 
Button are witnesses. 

Thomas de Button, Archdeacon 
of Wells ; elected Dean of 
Wells 1284 ; became Bishop of 
Exeter, and died in 1307. 

(Page 39.) 

The exact connection of Bishop John Harewell with the Worcestershire family 
is not shewn by the Wells MSS.; he was probably brother of Eoger, who is 
mentioned as father of Canon Eoger Harewell, who in 1380 obtained from the 
Chapter a confirmation of a lease he had made of part of his canonical buildings. 
This Eoger became Archdeacon of Bath, and was admitted to residence by the 
Chapter in 1392. Canon Eoger Harewell presented to Compton Dundon in 1409, 
and to Mudford 1424. Eichard Harewell was installed a Canon and Prebendary of 
Litton 1 Oct. 1361. He makes formal declaration that he desires to become a 
Eesidentiary 24 Sept. 1388. Canon Thomas Harewell in 1380 was acting for the 
Dean. Another Eichard Harewell was instituted to the living of Trent in 1410, 
and to that of St. Cuthbert, Wells, in 1424. John Harewell, Eector of Berkeley, 
died in 1459. 

William Harewell, who in the Worcestershire Visitation is recorded as having 
married Agnes, daughter of Sir Henry Owgan, presented to the living of 
Beercrocombe in 1454, 1457, and again in 1489, and to Capland in 1467, but died 
in 1504, when Agnes, the relict of William Harewell, presented to Beercrocombe 
and to Capland. Nor did this long connection of the family end then, for John, 


son and heir of the above William and Agnes Harewell, left five daughters his co- 
heirs, one of whom, Elizabeth, married Anthony Rowley of Devonshire, and she 
with her husband presented to Oapland in 1519 and again in 1531. 

(Page 43.) 

Richard Symonds in his ' Diary ' mentions the following coat as being in coloured 
glass at the church of Hinton St. George when he visited the place in 1644 : Arg., 
on a/ess az., betw. in chief three stags' heads caboshed or, and in base as many fleurs- 
de-lis sa., a bishop's mitre. The fleurs-de-lis are no doubt a mistake of Symonds 
for pheons.

Mrs. Sarah Thring died 26 Sept. 1891 ; her son, Theodore Thring, Esq., died 
28 Sept. 1891. They were both buried at the same time in plain graves, side by

(Page 86.) 

The following pedigree does little more than suggest additions to Mr. Greenfield's, 
already quoted, and is wholly compiled from the Cathedral MSS. ; at the same time 
it corrects the errors in the Harl. MS., which was partly Mr. Greenfield's authority. 

The Cathedral MSS. shew no evidence that Mary de Drokensford brought the 
Manor of Shipham to the Clyvedon family, but rather that Clyvedon had it from 
Malherb, which is supported by the Hastings quarterings at North Cadbury, among 
which are, Or, a lion ramp. az. crowned yu., Clyvedon, and Arg., three nettle-leaves 
gu. f Malherb. But no coat of Drokensford.

The coat used for the See in the Ken memorial window is not quite correctly 
described ; it is quite a new variation — namely, the keys are in saltire, and the 
sword has the point in base. 


Beneath the above Ken window, since that part of this Work was printed, a 
brass plate has been fixed in memory of the late Dean Plumptre, with the following 
inscription : —

In the account of the heraldry in the Vicars' Common Hall, the following was 
omitted : On the frame of the painting representing the Vicars receiving their

piece, and Arg., a lion ramp. sa. crowned or, on a canton az. a chev. oetw. three acorns
